Fear is basically a combination of two things: not knowing the outcome and not believing in yourself. And that’s exactly why I launched RebeccaTDickson.com. To show you how to write on your terms and to boost your confidence.
Everything I have went into this site. I want you to break free of your self-doubt.
The one thing I haven’t yet given you is something tangible, a step-by-step guide if you will, to help you put your guts on the page.
Most of you prescribe to my screw-the-fear-I-can-do-this mantra. But now you need to move forward.
Enter my new badass project.
The Definitive Guide to Writing on Your
Terms Using Your Own Honest-to-God, Gut-wrenching Voice
You don’t need anyone’s permission to write, or to write what you want.
You are the only one holding you back.
You have the power to change everything.
What you get
• Specific ways you are holding yourself back.
• A detailed guide showing you everything you need to put an end to writer’s block.
• A checklist to help you get writing NOW.
• How to quash the internal editor forever.
• How to avoid the number one mistake that causes people to quit before they even get going.
In the time it takes to read it, you’ll know what took me more than a decade to figure out.
This is NOT a book about:
• Author platform building
• Social media
• Selling your books
• Offering your services
• Developing online courses
If you don’t want to write, this is not for you.
If you don’t think swearing is funny, this is not for you.
If you want to learn how to diagram sentences á la 6th grade English, discuss verb-noun agreement or the merits of the Oxford comma, this is not for you.
On the other hand …
If you’ve had an idea for a story rattling around in your head for a decade and need help getting it out …
OR if you always wanted to write but convinced yourself you didn’t have the time, talent or wherewithal …
OR if you want to take what’s beating inside your chest and throw it onto the page with fury and passion …
This book will help you with that.
Those of you who have worked with me on your manuscripts or in private coaching know my mantra. Readers are starving for substance without the bullshit. They want honesty. When they get it, they’re thankful you haven’t wasted their time. You can give them all of that just by being yourself.
You keep them reading. You are the only person who can make them feel something – the unabashed goal of every writer.
You’re probably thinking one of the following:
But I’m scared I suck.
But I don’t have time to write.
But what if no one reads my stuff?
If you truly want to write, then BUT doesn’t belong in your vocabulary.
Those concerns are reasonable. Sometimes, writing is scary. So is making time for yourself. And so is doing nothing. Besides, aren’t you wasting more time and energy by NOT writing? I mean, not doing the thing you love, day in and day out, is exhausting.
Here’s a thought: Don’t. The only thing in your way is you.
Stressed to the max? I totally get it. Kids. Full time job. House. Spouse. You have a million responsibilities. You’re exhausted, yet there’s always more to do. It doesn’t end. I wish I could say it would.
You have to decide when to do something for yourself. You deserve it. Maybe you’ve dreamed about writing your whole life. For many people, that is exactly what writing will always be: Something they dream about, but are sure they could never accomplish.
Guess what? You can. And you will.
This book is for people serious about writing.
The ones who come alive thinking about putting pen to paper.
This book is not for the ordinary.
Don’t buy it unless you’re willing to wrap your arms around what is possible and give it a big, fat kiss.
