Don’t Get Caught Up in the “Must Write The Next Blockbuster” Cult

Getting caught up in writing the best novel will only result in a deflated ego and no book, and that’s not a good start to your writing career.  

Accepting few people write the blockbuster story that becomes the best-selling novel that gets the film rights for that memorable production is a good start. Thinking of simply writing to tell your story and because you enjoy it is an even better start. 

The reward of fulfilling your dream is the only satisfaction you should pursue, and everything else will fall into place. Write, write, and write some more. Enjoy and appreciate the process. 

Steer away from singularly aiming to become rich and famous because it’s not as simple as that. Most of our successes are derived from things we take pleasure in doing. We’re most prolific and generate the best output when we don’t have to force the creative juices to flow. Life works that way in every respect. 

Each of us has a specific God-given talent. Some of us are lucky enough to find out what it is early in life and hone it. Many of us go through our lifetime, never finding out what it is. If you enjoy writing, do it. You may end up with a mediocre novel, or it may be great. It doesn’t matter as long as you give it your best shot. As the great Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.”
