The Real Reason You Aren’t Writing

emilyHere are the Top 10 Reasons My Clients SAY They Aren’t Writing:

  1. I don’t know where to start.
  2. I’m waiting for inspiration.
  3. I’m worried my writing style isn’t entertaining enough.
  4. Having the dream of being a writer is better than making it a reality.
  5. I’ll be seen as a hack.
  6. Everything I have to say has been said.
  7. I’m opening myself up to criticism.
  8. My mother isn’t going to like what I have to say.
  9. I’m afraid of being exposed.
  10. Who am I to write a book?

 

All seemingly good reasons, which I’ve heard echoed by client after client and in workshop after workshop — and all LIES.

Fancy lies.

But lies.

There is only one reason you aren’t writing:
YOU HAVE NOT CHOSEN TO MAKE WRITING A PRIORITY.

And that’s fine – but you might as well own it.

It reminds me of what Brooke Castillo says about why people are overweight:
“YOU ARE EATING MORE FOOD THAN YOUR BODY REQUIRES FOR FUEL.”

That’s it. That’s the truth. Good to know.

Your choice. But I know what I want for you.
