The Twin Fears
What are the weird twin fears? It is the fear of failure and the fear of success. These two different fears tend to travel in tandem, even though you wouldn’t think that people would necessarily be afraid of success. However, there is something to be said about the fear of success.
Many people are afraid of getting their name out there, of having a career that they’ve always wanted to finally having that in their hand.
And of course, we know the fear of failure. One of the most difficult parts of the writing process and the publishing process is rejection–of getting a no, of people not falling in love with your story in the same way that you’re in love with your story.
It’s really important to have the resources and the support to get through both of those really vivid and very real fears in your life, in your writing life, and in your future publishing life. And I’ll tell you what: they don’t go away once you’re a published author. We just change and morph for a little bit and become a little bit different.
So if you’d like to talk to me about your fears and how you can get the support that you need to become a published author to live the author lifestyle, I’d love to chat with you.
