I'm sure I've said this before, but it's worth repeating - it's worth reminding myself every now and then. You may look at others who write/have written and say to yourself 'I will never be as good as they are. I'll never be able to write like they do.' My response to that is bull! We as individuals are not alike - we don't think alike, we don't visualize the world in the same way...we're all different. Consequently, we will all write differently. And thank goodness. How boring books would be if they were all written the same way. I love going back and forth between writers who visualize things differently. And I look at my own writing and think 'I am not like them. I do not write the way they do. I am me! I am different! I write like no one else writes! I am special...unique!' And so are you. Write the way you want to write. Be yourself. Celebrate your individuality.
