This is a big mental block for many new writers. You haven't even started yet, and you already think no one is going to like your work.
Is it really true that no one is going to like your writing?
It’s 100% likely that there will be people who don’t like what you write. You’re not writing for everyone. You’re writing to the people who want to read your words, hear your opinion, or take your advice. Not everyone is going to like you, and that’s OK.
If you are trying to write to be liked, you will never succeed.
I’ve heard it many time, “I don’t’ want to write because no one will like it.” It’s a mind game you are playing with yourself. You’re talking yourself out of writing, with an excuse that isn’t valid.
The power of the written word evokes change. Book get banned. Books get read by millions. Others have their own cult following. It doesn’t matter if you’re book is liked.
You are writing it for several reasons. You WHY - needs to be clear and visible. And your WHO does too. WHO is going to read your book? Who are you writing for? That's all you should care about liking your book.
Do you know how many crappy books I’ve read, that I didn’t like but were best sellers, and everyone was reading. Too many. Don’t judge yourself by standards that aren’t realistic. All you have to do is WRITE.
Pro-Writer’s Tip: Do not judge yourself while you’re writing. It’s a process of surrendering yourself to the process not trying to control it. This goes for ALL writing genres. If you go into this with the mindset of negativity (all the things you’re not or that could go wrong), you’re setting yourself up for a painful process.
“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control.” ― Julia Cameron
