I listened to Taylor Swift on the way into work today. Always silly because one of her catchy tunes always gets stuck in my head all day! Today’s song that I can’t shake off is FEARLESS and it’s actually a pretty good theme song for me right now.
“And I don’t know how it gets better than this
You take my hand and drag me headfirst, fearless
And I don’t know why but with you I dance
In a storm in my best dress, fearless”
I recently signed up to attend a couple of writing events in London over the next couple of months that involve literary agents giving advice on getting published. This means not only meetings agents but fellow writers = networking!
I’m pretty used to networking through my job and I’m confident enough to speak to people I don’t know in a work setting but I’m nervous about these events as they’ll be the first I’ve attended as “a writer”. It’s another step forward on my journey that has already involved having my first critique by a fellow writer and joining a writing website to put me and my book “out there”. It’s hopefully another step forward on my path to being published.
So I’m going to try to not be nervous but display my writer tag confidently and proudly. Be fearless. That’s the mantra to live by right now.
What do you need to be fearless about today?
