Do you have enough talent to be writer?
By: Margaret Feinberg

“Do I have enough talent to be a writer?” asked one of the students in the Write Brilliant Academy.

While surfing online she stumbled on an agent’s website that said…

“Most people should not be encouraged to write.”

Those words sent her into a spiral of self-doubt and second-guessing. I offer a response here.

But the question of talent remains.

Maybe you, too, wonder, Do I have talent when it comes to writing?

I will respond to you as I did to my precious Write Brilliant Academy student.Read More

Ever sit to write but the words feel stifled? Or the inner critic roars its ugly head?

You’re not alone. I do too.

Every writer must develop their own technique to overcome the inner critic that whispers that you, your story, your words, somehow aren’t good enough.

Which is why I decided to ask one of the most delightful writers I know to share her secrets to overcoming perfectionism in writing.

When I read Shauna Niequist’s writing, I feel like I’m sitting with a best friend.

When I read Present Over Perfect, I laughed, cried, and felt awe. Shauna is a gift and I’m proud to call her my friend.

You’ll glean bountiful wisdom from her writing advice:

Years and years ago, someone gave me a piece of writing advice that I still use almost every day, more than a decade into my life as a professional writer. I don’t even know who told me this—I wish I did, because I would send them beautiful flowers or bourbon, my eternal thanks for a trick I’ve been employing near constantly.Read More

While surfing online she stumbled on an agent’s website that said…

“Most people should not be encouraged to write.”

Those words sent her into a spiral of self-doubt and second-guessing. I soon followed into a spine-tingly death spiral myself.

Those. Are. Scary. Words.

Then I remembered….Read More

Have you ever tried to learn another language? Maybe you’re onto your third or fourth. Once you hit a certain age, linguists say that acquiring additional languages is difficult.

As in no bueno.

Okay, if we’re honest, our first language can be hard, too. We struggle to imagine what it’s like for those who are learning English as a second language. If that’s you, bravo!

The BBC’s Matthew Anderson helped us remember this when he shared a little-known “rule.”Read More

I made this mistake for years. You don’t have to.

These words are killing your writing (and mine). Let’s cut them out.
