You Are A Writer, part 252

Guy Kawasaki writes about the effect of stereotypes on performance. Basically, if you’re told “part-time writers never make it big,” you’ll believe that. If you don’t think of yourself as a writer, you won’t write like one. Frame yourself as a “writer.” Believe in your own success. (But do remain somewhat realistic and open to criticism.)
