If you are reading this post, then there is a possibility that you want to be a good writer. We all want to write, write that novel, that screenplay, that self-help, that article, but we just can’t. It’s the fear of failure that keeps us from our dream of writing.

Write against that fear of failure and more so because you must fail. Fail with your head held high because there is no greater knowledge than the knowledge gained from failure. Fail until you have failed enough because when you have failed enough, everything thereon counts as success. You will know the value of that simple success —which might not make you a star— but will certainly satisfy you immensely. Eventually, those successes will add up.

Everybody writes for success, but you must write to fail. Give writing the best, and proudly fail.

Let that fear go and indulge in the gift of writing.

Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.

-Thomas A. Edison

Still afraid of failing, this might comfort you.

Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo.

-Jon Sinclair

Get above failure, create a beautiful mess.

Know what the writer of Chronicles of Narnia thinks about failure:

Failures, repeated failure, are finger posts on the road to achievement. One fails forward towards success.

-C.S. Lewis

I will end with an admission:

I am a great failure, greatest there ever was and I am proud of it, for I have learned a lot.
