I don't know about you, but it feels nice to treat yourself like a pro, even when you're in the beginning stages of writing.
And I know what that's like.
I was expected to write a query letter with no previous published writing credits, market a fresh new book without ever previously marketing anything, speak at an elementary school on writing when I'd never broached the subject before.
But there has to be a first time, right? If no first, then no second, or third or so on.
You've probably heard the saying, "Fake it till you make it," but what if you went out there, using all of your guts, all of your ingenuity, all of your writing talent, and didn't have to 'fake' anything? What if everything was already inside you for use?
Writing like a pro means you don't allow yourself to dwell on the beginning of your journey. Sure, you might honestly be 'beginning' this journey, but what is it that you want? What is it that you feel like you can give right now to get what you want?
To me, that's living like a pro, and writing just comes naturally after that.
Have a great day!
