Got fear? Find Out How to Use it For Writing Success

October is best known for two things: Colorful seasonal transitions and spooky festivities …

This month's issue delves into the fears we all face – fears I remember well when I started my writing career (some of which I still have to this day!). But what I love about the Barefoot Writer message this month, thanks to our contributing writers who've faced their fears and done it anyway, is that we ALL go through those stages, and we come out better and stronger for it.

The best part of all is the take-home message from Featured Interviewee Marcia Yudkin, who breaks down the common fear of judgement and explains why it's A-okay to BE YOURSELF in the writing world – and that in fact, that's what'll bring you the most success.

Every single writer faces fear at some point. You can harness that fear to power you through the tough patches. That’s why our October issue focuses on ways to use fear and challenges as your fuel. That’s why we’ve covered:

  • How to purge workplace “hazards” in just five minutes a day
  • An easy and enjoyable way to slash stress levels and boost writing performance
  • 7 different ways to advance your mastery of words
  • What to do when you’re ready to achieve GREAT writing wealth
  • Which easy-to-join specialty profession is filled to brimming with opportunity
