#Quote – George Orwell on writing

“When I sit down to write a book, I do
not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”

~ George Orwell

“If you don’t make mistakes, you can’t make decisions” ~ Warren Buffet

That’s a quote that got my attention.

As I was pondering on the quote, I found the inspiration to write you on this post.

How to Overcome Your Fear of Writing Failure Before Dawn

Writing is beneficial to so many people. In fact, the average writer realizes that writing, whether it is done for self or for an audience, always benefits someone out there.

The lesson is that there is someone who values what you write. And true writers don’t write because the always want to get paid. They write because this is just part of them.

Writing is part of a true writer’s everyday activity. It doesn’t matter whether it is done on a blog or a piece of paper or on a computer screen. The reality is that writers don’t give up on their craft easily.

And so the easiest way to overcome your fear of writing failure is to put yourself out there.

Just write.

In fact, I’ll say you should write until it hurts.

Writing is what you do; intend it and take action. You’ll get better over time.

Forget the worries about being perfect. Perfection is just a myth because true art can never be complete.
