Your comfort zone is that area of your writing life where you feel safe.
Paradoxically, no matter how safe it feels, your comfort zone is dangerous, because it will make you feel either complacent, or "not good enough"... it prevents you from becoming the writer you can and should be.
To extend your writing skills, and build a writing career, you need to be prepared to move out of your comfort zone whenever you start to feel too comfortable, or whenever you feel envious of other writers.
I offer coaching with most of my writing products, and 99 per cent of the time, I need to help students to get out of their comfort zone, even if they're unaware they're in one. :-)
Signs you're in a comfort zone:
* You say things like "I've got nothing to write about", "my writing is boring", "no one would be interested..." etc
* You think things like: I don't have enough experience, I'm too young, old, don't have enough education, what would my parents/ friends etc think...
* You're SCARED... (being scared is actually a good thing)
When I'm working with students, all the advice I offer and the steps I tell a student to take are based on his/ her personality, and level of writing experience.
Firstly I like to give students an easy writing process to follow so that they can write on demand, and feel competent. Having a process which works for you is essential, you need to know that even on your worst day, with a migraine which would slaughter an elephant, you can nevertheless WRITE, because you know how to get the words out of yourself and onto the computer screen.
Then I create a game plan for them which gets them motivated, inspired and EAGER to get out of their comfort zone.
Are you in your comfort zone? Get out of it -- staying too long is dangerous.
