Writing Inspiration #22

The worst thing that can happen to anybody is giving up on a dream or ambition from the fear of rejection. And yet, as I write this down, I think of time that awaits me when my book is finally done. That’s when those damn talons of fear grip me, choking me, and there is not one way I wish to continue doing what I am after.

Is there a way to fight that demon? Because sooner or later, we may have to finally be at its door. And when the day comes, we better be prepared. Here’s a quote I came across that does momentarily help me, when I think of perhaps, the not-so-grand scheme of things in future. One never knows!

It is one by the author Robert Mckee. I stumbled across his profile when I was looking for best books on screenplay writing. His book ‘Story’ has gained quite some fame in the field of dialogue-writing and screenwriting. While I am still contemplating buying the book, here’s the quote for you.


What do you think? What helps in beating that fear of rejection or ridicule?ย Do share your thoughts below.

Happy writing, till we meet next.

Until then, carpe diem!ย ๐Ÿ™‚
