Trust within yourself

       If you are like most of the writers in the world, you have had a time where you couldn’t write. You were caught with the season of faithlessness that almost causes you to quit what you love to do. You cant trust what you write, because your heart isn’t in it. This blog is for those who are dealing with that right now.

       I am a writer. I have wanted to be a writer since I was young. I started to write a novel when I was a freshman in High School, and nearly finished it. I then started a new horror story, this story made it to page 34. The next story was a movie script, which was a solo project in order to train myself to write new things. I have written a handful of short stories, over thirty songs, a handful sermons, and a couple truck full of blog post.

      I want to tell you all of this to say, there are times that I will sit down and delete a post a thousand times, it happens to all of us. It is a lack of faith in yourself that you will have to overcome. I hate 30% of my past writings, but it helped me learn what my style is. But then there are times that I feel that I am repeating the same thing over, its like I am repeating myself over and over. I then get discouraged and threating to quit. But then when I get done with a new post, I see that it might sound like an old post, but in a different perspective, or it doesn’t sound like it at all and I was being to hard on myself.

      Another thing that will cause a lack of faith to come is when I think of all of my old work. I was a smooth writer, it felt, in the past. Now it feels that I have times when I get caught in a knot. I start to think that I have changed for the worse in my writing. This is very discouraging, but then one day, I forced myself to read the post I believed to be so smooth in. The thought process in those were those of a scattered mine. The spine didn’t go through the whole blog, the outline was almost invisible. That is when I realized that I put more time and effort into these post, and that’s why it seems that it takes longer to get my thoughts out.

       What is the cure for those who are feeling untrusted in yourself? Trust, of course this is the answer, but how? You will have to know that someone wants to hear what you have to say. There will always be someone silently yelling your name in the background, but most of the time we are worried about the front row, that we forget to notice the ones behind the scenes. These are those fans that might not comment, but still visit your blog everyday. These are also those who are the biggest supporters of your “Worse” blogs or book ideas. If they were to tell you anything, it would be to never give up, and to stop being so rough on your beautiful works.
