Increase Your Writing Productivity by Letting Go of These 5 Things

1. Self Doubt

Stop doubting yourself and your abilities. If you are just starting out as a writer, there will be obstacles. The trick is to learn from these obstacles and overcome your personal doubt.

2. Anger

Carrying around anger might be good fuel for a character or two in a book, but it is not something you should carry with you each time you prepare to write.

Let go of the anger. Remember what it feels like, take note of it, but when you are writing, you have to let it go to increase your creativity.

3. The Desire for Inspiration

You could easily waste your entire life looking for that perfect inspiration that is going to propel you to write a best seller.

Have you ever heard the saying, “A watched pot never boils.”? If you are actively looking for inspiration, you probably won’t find it. Instead, keep your eyes open and make your own inspirations happen.

4. Comparing

Stop comparing yourself to other writers. You will probably never measure up. Instead, work on your own writing skills and create your own path to writing success.

5. Fear

People fear what they don’t know or understand. It can be a fear of death or a fear of heights. As a writer, you must dive head-on into your fears and the fears of others when writing.
