TWA’s Harrison Demchick had the pleasure of writing a guest blog post on Bryan Hutchinson’s Positive Writer, an encouraging and motivating blog that aims to help writers overcome Writer’s Doubt. In his post, “Two Kinds of Scared Writers (and How to Overcome the Fear),” Harrison reminds us that we all, even those of us who have worked in publishing, are at least a little scared of the publishing process.
Harrison explains that he’s experienced two different scared writers: the writer who doesn’t finish and the writer who finishes and never pushes on through the publishing process. Both let fear get in the way of their success.
Of course, Harrison doesn’t leave it there—his valuable perspective from both sides of the publishing world allows Harrison to give readers some great advice on overcoming the fear of publishing.
Of course, a huge thanks to Bryan Hutchinson, author of Writer’s Doubt, for inviting Harrison to be your guest!
