Don’t be shy

“Every writer must overcome a kind of shyness,

We have to put it out of our mind this fear that we are being arrogant

We have to be thrusting ourselves on our readers,

Is it egotistical to assume our words are worth others time?

Why should they care about what we have to say?

What right have we to impose our thoughts on others? …

That‘s what all a writer do, especially a writer of faith;

They offer a unique perspective of things around them, things they feel

They point to a view visible only from the point they’ve been at.

Adapted from Philip Yancey
