How To Eliminate Your Fear Of Writing by Mirza Jaka Utama

For most people, writing is something that is so difficult to do. Yet, the same people don’t have any trouble speaking or communicating their ideas freely to others. If only they can turn their ideas (in which they speak freely) into written words, then writing shouldn’t be so difficult to do. If you have a fear of writing (which dreaded you every time you want to start), here are some tips that you can follow in order to eliminate your fear of writing:

1. Recognize That It’s Just An Illusion

Most of the time, your fear of writing is just an illusion. It doesn’t exist. What you fear is nothing. You think that people will not like your writing, or you think that they will not read it. But, even if it’s true, what have you got to lose? Nothing. As long as you really like to write your ideas, it doesn’t matter if people dislike or don’t read your writing. If you keep doing it, they will eventually take notice. But, if you stop and give away to your fear, then it will prove to them that you’re indeed not worth their attention.

2. No One Will Judge Your Writing

Remember that no one will judge your writing, especially if you’re just starting out. People are tolerant enough toward many things, including your writing. Moreover, no one will really care about what you write unless your writing really benefits them in some way. So, don’t worry about people’s judgement. Just keep writing and you’ll know that it will be fine.

3. Just Do It

If you have a fear of writing, then you need to do one thing. Just do it. People are so reluctant to walk the first step. If you want to do something, first make an intention to do it, and then do it. It’s that simple. If you don’t know what to do because of your fear, then you have to know that the only thing that you need to do is to start conquering your fear. Do it! Now, prepare your writing tools and start writing.

4. Do It Word By Word

What? You don’t know what to write? Well, the solution is simple. Do it word by word. In other words, write that first word into your writing program or notebook. That first word will keep you going. That first word will become a sentence. And it will become a paragraph. It will then become several paragraphs, which will end up turning into a great piece of content that you can show off to others. It’s all begin with one word.

So, can you beat your fear of writing? Keep practicing, and you’ll be able to do it. Meanwhile, if you have urgent writing project that you need to do, you can hire professional writers to complete your project. Click here to learn why you should hire professional writers for your writing project.
