Give yourself permission to experiment and try. Because that’s where it begins.
We get so concerned with getting it “right”, constantly polishing the perfect content and picking the best topics, that we don’t even give ourselves the space to experiment with writing. We crank up the expectations so much that we don’t leave any room for trial and error or for experiencing what it’s like to share our ideas and stories.⠀
Like most things you can’t get better at writing by just rehearsing the words in our heads. You can’t experience what it’s like to share and connect if we only ever imagine our art in our minds. ⠀
Yes, there’s a time for being focused, having a niche, going deep on topics, but you don’t get there without at least some experimentation FIRST. You don’t get there without practicing writing. And you definitely don’t get there with just keeping the words and ideas tucked away in your mind. ⠀
