Now, seriously, what is preventing you from writing your story?
You know which story. It's been swirling round your head for years. Maybe even your whole life. The story you're secretly dying to share with the world. The story with the power to change someone's world if you could just get it out of your head and out for the world to see.
So what's stopping you?
Your story is your story. It doesn't have to fit anyone else's categorizations. It doesn't have to meet a set word count. It's anything you need it to be.
It doesn't have to be 'perfect'. There's no such thing anyway. Your story is enough, however it comes out.
If this all sounds familiar or cliche, maybe you need to hear it one more time anyway.
