How To Say Fcuk Fear & Build Your Writing Brand!

9:56 PM

You've been sitting on your book or story idea for so long you can't even remember. All you know is that you want to be a writer.

You keep telling yourself that you're going to do whatever it takes to be able to quit that horrible job and make a living from your writing. Your babies deserve better and you know you can give it to them.

However, when the time comes to show and prove, the work doesn't get done.

I know this feeling all too well.

We tell ourselves that the reason we haven't finished our book is because we don't have the time. Your blog is collecting dust because you've run out of topic ideas. Hell, English was your worst subject in school. Of course writing an entire book would be tough, right?


The real reason why you haven't reached your goals is because of one thing: Fear.

You're scared to death that you're going to put your all into this publishing dream and it's not going to work out.

You've convinced yourself that the risk you'd have to take is so large that you may not be able to handle the pressure.

There is nothing wrong with being a little scared. That's normal when you take on anything new but you can't let fear cripple you into inaction.

I almost cancelled my first book signing because I was scared nobody would show up. Things started to go wrong as soon as I opened my eyes that morning. I figured it was a sign.

It wasn't. It was an excuse to give in to my fear of failure.

How did I overcome my fear, build a brand thanks to my writing, and write four Amazon bestselling books?

  1. Fears are the stories we tell ourselves. - I remembered that fear is nothing more than my imaginary thoughts running wild. I had ZERO proof that nobody would show up at my event. Because it was my first one, I assumed that it would be a flop. Once I stopped lying to myself I gathered enough courage to make it out the door. If a voice in your head tells you that your book won't sell or nobody is interested in what you blog about ignore it! The devil is a liar and you can defeat those unfounded fearful thoughts. (Btw, I sold every book I had that day and my signing was a success.)
  2. It always works out in the end. ALWAYS!I love me some ratchet TV. Reality shows and their messy drama are my guilty pleasure. One show that I watch is Married To Medicine. There was an episode where one of the ladies named Quad started a fashion line for dogs. All signs showed that it was a bad idea and she should give it up. She had a hard time securing funding and the day of her line's first fashion show everything behind the scenes was chaotic. However, Quad pushed through and had a successful show. She also impressed her investors and got the funding she needed. What that taught me that even when it looks like things are going bad everything will work out fine as long as you don't panic and see it through to the end.
  3. The only way to conquer fear is to face it. Period. - This is plain and simple. No need for a drawn out explanation. All it takes to conquer the fear of something is to do it. You will never get over the fear of being a blogger until you post to your blog and SHARE the post with your network. How many books can you sell if you never write the book? 
I know that doing all of this is easier said than done especially if you've never published any writing.
