Insecure Writers Support Group

Alex has this cool, monthly post called The Insecure Writer’s Support Group.

I love this idea–and not just for writers, either–for everyone. I mean, who couldn’t use an encouraging word, pat on the back, or hug (even cyber hugs).

As an author/writer I often worry about things such as who likes my book, who doesn’t, why don’t they–but then I mentally slap myself and remember very key advice I’ve received on this journey:

“You can’t please everyone. Not everyone will like you or your writing style.”

It’s so true. I know I don’t like every single book I pick up to read. It’s not a knock against the writer as a person, it just wasn’t my type of book. So, I say, whether you’re a writer or not,

“Keep on doing what you’re doing.”

Have a super day, everyone!

  1. It’s true. I remind myself of that while I’m writing, that not everyone is going to like it. What’s important is everything I learn along the way. πŸ™‚

  2. Great advice! And really, think about it. Do you really WANT everyone to like your book? I don’t! I didn’t write it for everyone. I have a target audience I want to please. Everyone else is tofu gravy. πŸ™‚
