All Writing Is Rubbish at First
But it doesn’t have to stay that way.

“Write until you’re no longer afraid to write.” — Seth Godin
You can’t expect to be great at anything you try for the first time. You can’t be great if you don’t practice. And you can’t practice if you’re afraid.
We expect excellence. We expect to be gifted. We expect millions of views after six blog posts.
But that will never happen.
So we fear writing. We fear judgment. We fear failure.
It’s ok to be afraid. It’s not about overcoming fear, then writing. It’s about overcoming fear with writing.
Simply keep writing until you are no longer afraid. Only then can you expect to start seeing results.
