Answer? Who cares.
In her post, “Do I have writing talent? You’re asking the wrong question,” Suzannah Windsor Freeman asks, “What if we agreed to stop wondering ‘Do I have talent?’ in favour of another question: ‘How can I improve my writing?’
This is something I’m sure a lot of us need to read, myself included! Head on over to Writer UnBoxed to read the actual post in its entirety.
“…coming to the conclusion that we either do or do not ‘have it’ can lead to some unhelpful assumptions. For example, I’ve always been good at writing, so writing a book will be easy (very probably not true). Or, My novel was rejected, so I guess I’m just not meant to be a writer (not necessarily true).”
Stop second guessing yourself and instead, take steps to improve in whatever you have a passion for…be it writing, singing , gardening, pie-making—just keep moving forward.
Mmm…I like pie.
