There’s a sure way to end your writing career. It’s a simple phrase. We all use it and it is a killer. Not only does it hurt your progress as an author, it could have a profound impact on your life. Two words can end it all.
Are you one of those people who respond to a challenge with, “I can’t?” If so, you have sealed your fate. Can’t never did and never will. Maybe you will not succeed at everything, but beginning with a negative insures failure. So what if you don’t know how to write a romantic love scene. Why not try? Call on all your experiences. Remember how you felt when you kissed your spouse or significant other for the first time. Use your senses and write from the heart.
Will your effort be perfect? Maybe; maybe not. The point is you tried.
