In my opinion, there is nothing that makes you more vulnerable than the written word. Once published, mistakes you can’t erase slash at your confidence. Without fail, as an author, you always find them in your books. They laugh from the pages, taunting you for missing them in the first place. “Someone smarter would have never allowed this misspelling in their novel.” Maybe they’re right, but I continue to learn every day, turning those mistakes into strengths. The list of words I never misspell or misuse anymore grows all time. To write well takes lots of practice, just like most things in life. If you love something, don’t fear the struggle, embrace it, even if it means your mistakes will be out there for everyone to see and judge. Struggles are the catalyst that improve our passions the most.
