Are you blocked on a deeper level?
Perhaps you’re worried that nobody will read your book, or that you don’t have the expertise or authority to write one…?
It might be the doubt and fear holding you back.
Please know that your voice is valuable.
And your first draft is going to be pretty ordinary, just like everybody else who has ever written a book! That’s what editing is for.
I always tell my clients to ‘go raw and go hard’ in the first draft. Just write without fear of what anybody else is going to think or say.
You can always delete stuff in the edit later.
For now, just tap into what you want to say and how you instinctively want to say it, and go for it!
Your way of writing is what makes you unique and what your eventual readers will love about you.
Not everybody WILL love your book, but you are not speaking to them.
You’re speaking to the person whose life you’re going to change.
Once you’ve written a book, edited numerous times and published it with a kick-arse cover, you will be seen as an expert in your industry.
A quality book makes you stand out.
So write the darn thing and nobody will question that anymore – hopefully most of all, you’ll believe it!
For now, give yourself permission to write badly.
As my writing mentor said when I was writing my first book, “Don’t get it right. Get it written.”
