What would help you, as a writer, feel more confident in the value of your own ideas?
I've noticed that many brilliant people seem to question or simply not recognize the value of their own ideas. I'd like to help people learn that their ideas have value and that they have little to lose by trying them out in writing. What things do you think might help boost their confidence in the value of their ideas?
If there is a way to reward and encourage uniqueness that would do it. It sometimes seems that following the same old tried and true topics and styles gets rewarded because it takes people a long time to embrace things that are different and unique.
I think it ultimately comes down to believing writing needs to be a priority in my life. I have many incomplete ideas all written to some degree and I attempt to write NANOWRIMO yearly, but I never complete it. Between responsibilities with family and work, I tend to give in to those demands and then focus on lesser rewarding activities when I have time. I think recognizing my abilities as a writer could be a bump in the road despite the positive feedback from friends and family over the years. I know if I put my mind to it I can get it done, but as yet haven't managed the magical 'time management' required to do so.
Brainstorm, research ideas, brainstorm.
Lot of reading, and daily writings.
As a writer, in order for me to have more confidence valuing my own ideas, I have to believe. There are times that you believe and you do believe and at a certain stage in life, your grasp to that belief doesn't hold true anymore. There are quite a number of personal ideas in your realm which are embedded within your true self that the way you think, act, speak, and engage with others are based on these solid concepts. From these thoughts originate the topics of what you feel like writing about. Those brilliant and not-so brilliant people out there who want to share their thoughts by writing, Mr. Life is out there- go ahead and share what you think, and how you think. Pick up that pen or use your 'word', Microsoft word, word perfect (ancient?), any text editor,...Anything and every single idea if given a focused attention and translated into words are and could be valuable. Can't wait to read you!

How to feel more confident.

Factoring androgens - based on biology and on the effects of male induced hormones that cause symptoms such as aggressiveness and whatnot, can that be enough of a justification to assume sexually-driven males are perceived as "more confident?"

I have a five-year old daughter who has a problem talking to others, either kids or adults. She can talk confidently with me, her dad and grandparents but she can't even say a word to other people (whom she doesn't see everyday), regardless their age. I don't know why she always loses her...

Do you believe in the power of prayer? I have found that whenever I pray to God, it is like something comes over me in the sense that I know he is going to take care of me and my situation. Don't you think if we trusted in God a little more, things would work out. I know I would not worry so much!
