In a world of information overload, it’s normal for writers to wonder if our words matter or if we’re simply adding to the overwhelm and noise. It’s easy to feel discouraged and wonder if we should keep writing when it seems like so many writers do it better than us, have a larger readership than us, or have a more established online presence.
All of those things might be true, but here’s the thing: No one can tell your story the way you do. No one else has your life experience, your wisdom, your training, your personality, your humor, or your particular zone of genius. If you want to write words that matter, filter them through your unique worldview and your experiences.
At hope*writers, we believe your hopeful words matter, regardless of how many writers share a similar storyline, topic, or message. There are enough readers for every writer, and there are readers who need to read words written from your perspective.
Writers who believe their words matter focus their attention on the reader and how they can serve them best. If you’ve kept your words private or feel anxious about sharing them, consider your reader. What do they need to hear? Where do they need to hear it? What are the words only you can offer them?
There are readers waiting for you to share your work with the confidence that you have something to offer. If you believe in your voice and your message, they will too.
