Working as a writer takes courage.
When you make the big announcement to your friends and family that from now on, you’re working as a writer, you may get responses that range from:
Fantastic! You’ll be a smashing success!
What? You can’t just invent jobs out of thin air. This has disaster written all over it.
Watch this. It made me cry – and it’s not the only one like it.
I’ve been surrounded by so many people who pretty much believed I could do this. At least those are the people whose responses I remember. I know there were some who doubted, and either told me or kept it to themselves. That’s okay, too, because really… working as a writer sounds like something made-up, something along the lines of getting paid to play video games or go on vacation.
What helped me believe in myself was seeing that other people were actually working as a a writer and making good money. If it’s possible for them, it was possible for me.
And if it’s possible for me, it’s possible for you, too.
Note, the guy in the video didn’t just wake up singing. He didn’t buy business cards and announce that he was an incredible singer. He took lessons. He got support from someone else doing it, too. Then he did something really brave… he just DID it.
The best way I know to help and support you as you do this is through my book and bootcamp. Wish I could just wave a magic wand and grant you the wish of a writing business of your own, but I can’t. If you want help, start with my book – and we’ll go from there.
