The Gift of Believing in Yourself

I read an article today that resonated with me. Here is an excerpt:

“Why do we teach people to write except that we think they have something important to say? …You’re writers: you want to tell your stories. For Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate, give yourself the gift of believing you have something important to say. Give your message the gift of saying it as well as you can. That’s why you’re reading blogs about getting published. Believe in yourself. In the end, the only reason writers persevere against the odds and the rejection and the critique and the blocks is because we believe our stories are worth telling.”
