This a common thing when we start writing.
In the beginning, I promised myself to write only to express my thoughts and satisfy my creative urges. The problem when you don’t write is that ideas just keep adding into your mind, and you know — use it or lose it.
And then we finally write, with two strong forces behind our back: the fear of judgment and the excitement of expressing ourselves!
I think that even if you get far into writing, you’ll still need some doses of approval, it’s essential for tracking your data and know that your writing has at least some impact.
The key is to not become obsessed with it, and always remember yourself why you really started — in my case, to satisfy my creative urges.
The fear of not being approved is always present, but we’ll work with it and in the process, find our true voice.
