You can ask yourself a hundred questions that will erode your self-esteem and pick away at your confidence if you want. Go ahead do it now? Ask yourself every single question that best exemplifies your fears. They will probably include:
“I don’t even know if I can write a book”
“I don’t want anyone to read it and tell me that it is no good”
“I’m not a proper author”
“Who would want to read anything that I write anyway”
They are all subterfuge. Any one of them would be enough to put you off from writing. The group of them may send you scurrying away seeking safety. The safety of not writing.
The best exercise that I can give you to get over this hurdle is to have a book handy. A story that you have really enjoyed, by an author that you admire. Open up the book to any random page and read one page only.
What you will see are simple sentence structure. Sentences making up paragraphs of ideas and themes. And by the end of the page nothing has changed. You are still seeing sentences and paragraphs. Not that remarkable really.
That author that you so admire, has written in simple prose, a story that is the sum of many very ordinary parts. And those ordinary parts can be done, over and over again, until they come together to form a cohesive book.
