  1. Thanks for the timely reminder not to fall into the comparison trap. I was just beating those gremlins down this morning! I remind myself what I heard a couple of years ago. Write what’s on you heart. Your audience will find you.

  2. “Never compare yourself to others”. That’s the root of the problem, for the most part. I’d say. We are all unique individuals, with different styles. These are wonderful tips, Corinne. I’ve no plans to participate in NaNoWriMo, but this is good advice at any time.

  3. Guilty as charged but not as guilty as I used to be. The one thing that has helped me more than anything else is to consistently “see” myself as others see me and it creates new awareness and appreciation for what I do/say/am.

  4. Inspiring Monday morning post for all of us who are perpetually plagued by the monster called self-doubt! Personally speaking, it couldn’t have come at a better time for me as I plan to return to blogging after a longish break, unable to string even a few words together to write a post!!! No excuses, try I must 🙂

  5. It’s so important not to compare ourselves with others. If we can do that, half the battle is won…I am not taking part in NaNoWriMo but these tips are useful for us bloggers and writers in general I think and quite helpful too if we can remember these

  6. That is such a wonderful and thoughtful post Corinne.. You really know how to lift up everybody’s spirits!

    Thank you!

    and Cheers to you!
