A “Strange Balance” for Writers

“With writing, I think you need to find some strange balance between confidence and humility. You need to start from a place of confidence, from the belief that you have a story worth telling and know how to tell it—you have to set out from this place with gusto. Then immediately open yourself to humility and the certainty of some kind of failure.” Will McGrath

    • Thanks for stopping by my blog! I agree that confidence is often harder to achieve (at least for me). I think that if you are truly confident in your writing, it is actually easier to respond to criticism in a humble way because you are less insecure about it. It is a weird thing to wrap your head around though!
