Taking Yourself Seriously

Taking Yourself Seriously


Taking yourself seriously as a writer is a rite of passage. You go from uncertainty to asserting yourself. It’s a new attitude that manifests in your actions. Instead of feeling uncomfortable when people ask what you do, you confidently say that you are a writer. Instead of putting off working on your script, you honor your writing routine. Instead of hesitating about having people read your material, you look forward to constructive feedback.

When a writer doesn’t take themselves seriously, they have little follow through with their ideas or plans. Maybe you’re afraid of completing something that is horrific, so you don’t work on it. Or maybe you’ve completed something and don’t want to risk anyone seeing it… and telling you it’s horrific. Maybe you don’t want to network with people who could very well be horrific. Rejection and criticism are enough to make anyone stall and put their work on the side burner.
