In the next few weeks I plan to make my first writing-specific youtube video. I plan to keep it basic at the start, because there is just SO much to say on the subject.
I think the important thing to remember is not to stress too much. There is no way I could say everything in one video, and I plan to make many more in the future, so I should just relax.
But what if I accidentally leave out some of the most fundamental things? What if I don’t sound smart enough? I need to prove that I know what I’m talking about, dammit!
Judging by what friends and family say about me, that comes across anyway. Sometimes.
I know better, of course. I say so, so many stupid things that I really do have cause to worry.
But I don’t, actually. I do not need to make it perfect. All I need is to give you (or, whoever watches the video) an idea of how I think about and approach writing. That’s not so hard, really. I can do that.
Of course, I am still going to stress over what to talk about. Even after I post the video, most likely.
You will do great. And if not, just delete the video and make another one. 😛
