Your Old Ideas are New to Many Readers

I’ve written about being old and old things. And even though everything is relative, I am a lot older than some very successful writers. I’ve read their stuff, taken courses from them, and am well aware that I’m nowhere near the top. I’m a newbie of sorts.

Shift Your Perspective

Self-doubt is common. Sadly, the longer we feed our insecurity, the more ingrained it becomes. It’s no different when it comes to writing, and you haven’t used your voice, either written or spoken. You’re less likely to publish online, and if you do, you’re easily discouraged.

What if people don’t agree with you?

So what? If people don’t disagree, then you haven’t taken a stand or said much. But even the majority of those that don’t agree, won’t eviscerate (gut) you.

Speak with Authority, Not Arrogance

Present your ideas and opinions and back them up with facts. Use the link feature to backlink to research and newspaper articles that you’ve read.
