How I Overcame Self-Doubt and Declared Myself a Writer


Editor’s Note:  This is a guest post by Beverly Army Williams.  It’s part of my monthly series Stories of Transformation.

A piece of art, a collaboration between visual artist Linda Jean Fisher and me, is held in the Pfizer Corporation’s collection. In the late 1990s, I handed a stack of poems to Linda Jean. She created graphite drawings and used the erase function of an electric typewriter to type my poems. This  lifted the graphite from the drawings, and the words stood out from the drawings in white. Her purpose was two-fold: she wanted to acquaint herself with my work, and she wanted to encourage me to call myself a writer.

I was a writer, but I was wary of claiming that title.

The Heart of September

The moon at dawn.

The moon at dawn.

At the end of each month, I publish my favorite articles from around the web, books, and resources – the ones that will help you live with more confidence, clarity, and ease.  Since I was busy as a bee this month, the list is shorter than usual, but still full of goodness.

Busy As a Bee

I’ve been as busy as a bee this September.  Honestly, I miss the quiet, reflective time of August.  At the same time, I see the fullness as an opportunity to find moments of reflection and ease even in activity.

Here are three more ways busyness helps me to lead a better life:

  1. Busyness helps me recognize and respect my limits.
  2. Busyness encourages me to be more organized.
  3. Busyness inspires me to be more creative with the design of my life.

I’m not addicted to busyness by any means.  But, I’ve decided to make good use of it when it cycles through my life.

Living with Ease

It’s been so inspiring to see people embrace the stress relief tools and deep self-inquiry prompts offered in my Living with Ease course over the past 21 days.  There have been life changing moments plus more joy, laughter, and ease.  I’ll offer the next session in January, 2014.

How was your September?  What did you learn?

I’m so glad you’re here! If you liked this article, please consider subscribing for free updates by email and joining me on Facebook.  If you can take a moment to share this post on social media, I would be very grateful.  With love, Sandra

Discover the Power of Writing Your Personal Fairy Tale

Fairy TalesWriting a short fairy tale of your life is a potent way to examine, understand, and change the entangled stories that may repeatedly diminish your happiness.

The process can expose the truth, sometimes with a jolt,  On the other hand, it contains the power to unleash a wave of self-compassion and self-acceptance.  This is especially so when you write in the third person and experience your personal suffering almost as though it belonged to another.

Like medicine, recognizing and owning your story can soothe long-held bruises and abrasions.  At the same time, capturing your saga gives you the chance to see and reinforce your strengths and celebrate your victories.

Exploring your embedded patterns through fairy tale illustrates where you are headed.  Is that where you want to go?  Grab the opportunity to exert rightful dominion over your existence  Imagine yourself in new, empowered ways  Drive your fable to a satisfying and meaningful conclusion.

January 2012 Review: On Writing and Micropublishing

The sun blessed us with her presence most of January, a stark contrast to the driving rains of Fall.  She often beckoned to me, but I (mostly) stayed present with the “work”.

I introduced Illuminations from the Heart, my weekly subscription letter and opened a page on my Writing Services.  I humorously – or seriously – thought to call it “I write for $”.  Is that too outrageous?

All before Mars – the planet of action – went retrograde on January 23rd, where she will relax until April springs forth.

Make Money Writing

Happily, after leaving a comment on Words Trumpet, I won a free spot in Charlotte Rains Dixon’s class Make Money Writing.

Rains Dixon has been successfully making money as a writer for years. During the dark ages (pre-internet) she wrote for traditional magazines and print publications. These days she mixes it all up writing a variety of content including articles, books, and ghostwriting alongside coaching and teaching. Charlotte’s passionate dynamism and caring heart infuse her teaching style.
