One of the hardest things I find with writing is trusting myself. I have learnt so much about the craft of writing, but often I find myself worrying when I write because I know I'm telling not showing, or using too many adverbs, or not keeping the conflict strong.
To be successful you need to trust yourself. Trust that what you can do will get you there. This was brought home to me this week when I was sent a link to a you tube clip from Australia's Got Talent 2011. The bloke in this clip trusted himself utterly - and while not a conventional approach, he won the day.
I need to remember this.
