Your Turn Challenge - The Why

Day 1: Why are you doing the Your Turn Challenge?

I'm participating in the Your Turn Challenge of Seth Godin's because... because for the longest time whenever I blog I feel like all I'm doing is reaching out into the void, that no one is listening. And feeling that way made it harder and harder for me to post, to feel like I have anything to say to anyone... but by silencing myself I was feeding into the insecurity I already had. No one was paying attention because I wasn't doing anything!

I am a freelance editor. I help burgeoning authors find their voice, sculpt their stories to share with others, release their ideas into the universe that is waiting to hear what they have to say. I'm participating in the Your Turn Challenge as a way of doing the same thing for myself. I'll be posting every day for the next week, writing based off of the launch pad questions on the site. I hope to find my voice at the end of it, and remind myself of what I have to offer the world.
