The Only Way to Feel Confident as a Writer Is to Be Confident in Your Readers

Disclaimer: It’s not what you think

I always worried about me rather than readers.

I always wanted to be the best.

I always wanted to be right.

I always wanted to be nice.

I always wanted to be attractive.

I always wanted to be special.

Something changed recently. I was failing.

I stopped being a writer and started being a reader who writes.

Now I realized a few things that changed my writing completely.

Readers are already smart.

They know more than we can even think off.

They are the best. They are the judge.

They are always right. They are always nice. They are always special.

When I realized that my readers are already smart, attractive and nice, my goal became simpler: just let them know that they are already smart and tell them how they can be smarter.

It has been a game-changer.
