You know, it’s funny because I actually knew all of this. Yet as I read through your post I couldn’t help giving myself a small mental puff “See! You already knew this, why aren’t you doing it!”.
I think I have a tendency of letting the voices win. I let them ridicule me, tell me how horrible my ideas are and whatever else they might come up with until I am defeated.
I’m getting better at it but it’s definitely one of the hardest things about writing from my perspective. Once you learn how to beat the voices, you’re already within reach of the goal line.
Thank you for further punching these principles into my head. I can already feel the inspiration creeping up on me.
