Why Writing A Book Makes You Seriously Cool - Writer's Life.org

You are seriously awesome did you know that? Just stop for a minute and think about that, about how awesome you are? It’s a good feeling, right? Hold onto it, because you deserve to feel that way.

Why? Because writers are seriously cool.

We spend so much time doubting ourselves, having to deal with rejection, worrying that we’ll never make it, and wondering what we are doing with our lives that perhaps it’s time to give ourselves a break. If you are doing it, if you are out there writing your book you should be celebrating. Because you are doing something so many people dream of, yet so few people actually manage to do.

Writers are amazing because they are:

Not afraid to be vulnerable

Writers are doing something scary, something personal and something with no guarantees. They are OK with being vulnerable (or at least they pretend to be!) because they know that it’s worth the risk.

Breathtakingly imaginative

Coming up with the plot, the characters, the world, and the dialogue for a whole novel is no mean feat - it’s actually pretty amazing that anyone can do it. Yet you are. You’ve thought of an entire story, you’ve created these amazing imaginary people and brought them to life - how cool is that?

Fearlessly brave

Being a writer requires you to be so brave. You know the odds, you know the risks, and yet you are willing to take the plunge, to put yourself out there and to take a chance.

Steely determined

All writers suffer setbacks. Most of them suffer setbacks over and over again. They keep going in spite of this. They know they have to pick themselves up after a rejection and they just keep trying. They never give up.

Willing to make sacrifices

All writers have to make sacrifices; it’s pretty impossible to write a book without doing so. Writers prove that hard work is necessary but oh so worth it in order to get what you want.

In touch with their emotions

Writers use their everyday experiences and the way they think and feel to perfectly capture emotions in their book. They aren’t afraid to explore their emotions and to truly express how they are feeling - more people could do with being this way.

Dream chasers

Writers chase their dreams, no matter how distant or impossible they seem. Never giving up on your dreams is amazing, especially in a world where so many people settle for less.

Inspiring role models

All of the above makes writers seriously inspiring role models. Not just the ones who find massive success, fame and fortune. But each and every one of us - and that is surely something to be proud of!
