Insecure Writer

There are so many topics that I’ve been inspired to write about. But I don’t. Insecurity comes up every time. My though process goes like this:

“Someone has undoubtedly already written about this topic, and they’re most likely more articulate, knowledgeable and eloquent than I am.”

Inspiration gone. But…

What if I just write to write. As a cathartic practice. As a form of self-love. As a way to help myself formulate my thoughts and feelings. No agenda beyond that. Just as I hike for no other reason than because being in nature satisfies some primal un-explainable desire, what if I write for no other reason than because I feel a deep desire to do so?

What do you do to overcome your insecurities around writing?
