Sage advice, Julie. I had years when I was too scared to write because I wanted to *sound* smart. You just have to write, and it gets easier. Perfect is the enemy of the good.
For anyone hoping to start writing, I’d recommend “Everybody Writes” by Ann Hadley. It’s chock full of calming, practical advice to get you moving. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1118905555/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
