A fear to be full-time writer

I am just afraid of being a full time writer. It has lots of uncertainties like how I will be paid and when I will be paid. Also, if the content that I have provided is of value to people or not. I, also sometimes be harsh on myself as English is not my first language but it is the language in which I can express myself better.

What is stopping me altogether?

The fear of being rejected. Whenever my work is rejected, I get the sense that it has perhaps no value to the people.

The fear of wasting time on something which won’t amount to anything. As an adult, we just have to understand that what we sow we don’t necessarily reap. There is like whole other situations affecting our result but then I am not able to separate myself from the result.

The fear of not having a story anymore. Just imagine, you are a writer and you are blank. The story you had in yourself is no more with you and is out in the world. What if there is nothing left to give?

The fear of being treated as a useless person or a freeloader. I am waiting for the day when I can have a job and I can pursue writing as my hobby.

What is not making me give up?

The stories are still with me and ready to be told.

I am pretty decent at this. I like writing and sometimes I do write well.

Hope that it would work!

I guess, I will be a full-time writer when my fears list will be shorter and motivation list long.

I love to write, especially about those thoughts which dominate my life most. I like reading something which is innovative on terms of human consciousness, social betterment and life in general.
