As an author, I sometimes (okay, maybe more than that!) find the hardest part of writing is my lack of self-confidence, especially as I get close to publication. I try to remind myself that as hard as I’ve tried, I’ll never please everyone — and that if no one had ever dared, the wheel never would’ve been invented.
Never fear failure; it only leads to success. Never cower in self-doubt; naysayers will always rain on your parade, even on the sunniest day. And don’t worry about being the “different” one; this world would be so boring if everyone was exactly the same.
