Fear-Free Friday: Dancing with Words and Silencing Your Doubts

Don't look at your feet to see if you're doing it right. Just Dance. -Anne Lamott

Don’t look at your feet to see if you’re doing it right. Just Dance.

Anne Lamott

On this first Fear-Free Friday video of the 2-Minute Author Challenge, I think this is an awesome quote to get the ball rolling.

For writers and authors, fear rears its ugly head in so many ways.

  • Self-worth
  • Impostor Syndrome
  • Lack of skills & tools
  • Nobody will read my book
  • My ____________ says I suck as a writer

Bottom Line:

We’re scared to step out in faith.

We tell ourselves these lies to let ourselves off the hook – to avoid personal accountability and our refusal to live in personal integrity

Make this commitment to yourself.

I will do what I said I would do, when I said I would do it, whether I feel like it or not.

Then live that commitment.
