Does Fear Hold You Back From Becoming an Author?
This is a video of me on an ePublishing panel a couple of years ago. The whole point to this is that if you live your life in fear of what people in authority will think of your actions, you’ll never become an authority in your own right. If you don’t want to be an authority, then don’t bother trying to become an author. You can’t mumble a book or magazine column into existence. You must first recognise your inner AUTHORity and then express it.
Act from a place of confidence, not fear. If you mess up, you’ll find a way to fix it. If you wait around for a perfection spell to be cast upon you, you’ll be waiting a long time. Waiting is not what creates greatness. You must act.
