As humans we can't help but compare ourselves to others. It appears to be a biological imperative at times. But in writing, it's a fear-raising experience that can stop us in our track to author-hood.

Believe me, my mind wanders down that road too many times when I think of the books that are written, but not edited, and I hear of someone, anyone, who moved past this point and published.

All it takes to bring me back, however, is knowing that those others aren't me. Each of us must find a way to believe in our voice, our writing and the stories we have to tell.

It takes a fearlessness, and blinders sometimes, to stop looking around us and instead focus for our lives.
