But Feeling Like “Everyone Else Knows Something You Don’t”...
is What’s Chipping Away at Your Writing Career.
This is unsettling news. But wouldn’t you agree that feeling frustrated, overwhelmed, and even ‘dumb’ for not knowing how to use writing software is dramatically affecting just how much writing you are getting done?
When’s the last time you looked at your plot outline for your novel and thought...I’m just not excited to do this. Everything is all over the place, and I don’t know how to keep it organized and in one place. (Who is my main character again?)
When’s the last time you looked at your calendar and felt your heart sink like a stone because your deadline is looming, but you can’t figure out how to edit your half-finished articles without losing your revisions? And because you don’t know...they’re not getting done?
All the while, you know that in order to be (or continue to be) a successful writer you need to keep writing...
But how can you do that when you can’t wrap your head around how to get your important research from Evernote over to Scrivener or figure out how you can use the Inspector tool and not feel like you just deleted all of your work?
Even if you’ve read the 500-page eBooks, watched the YouTube tutorials with low-quality sound, and tutorials with blurry screenshots, you’re still sitting there, feeling that tightness in your chest, that you’ll never finish the outline for your cookbook, that last chapter of your novel, that memorandum for your case, or reach that deadline.
It’s crushing. And that’s not how successful writers are made, either.
But what else is standing in the way?
