"I Wrote It Down And It Sucks!"
Okay so you have words on paper and you hate it. Remember you are not required to be perfect and I bet a lot of your dislike for your writing is your Fear talking. At this point, you proofread what you wrote, make corrections in spelling and grammar as best as you can. The main point is to be clear and organized in what you say. Check your article for repetition. If you found you have repeated a phrase unnecessarily then take extra wording out.
Get another opinion. Read it out loud or have a friend read it. See if your writing makes sense to them and they understand what you are writing about. This will help you in proofing department.
"What If No One Likes It?"
Ok not everyone is going to like it, but there will be people who do. You will never know unless you try. We are far more critical about ourselves than other people are on us. Somewhere some one is going to find what you have to say helpful. I think of articles I have read that have helped me. It was great to read about someone who already went through what I am going through now. At least I knew that I wasn't only one that was going through frustrations. I also learned from other people's mistakes, what pitfalls to avoid, saving me some problems in future.
Don't write simply for business reasons, but write from heart with intention of wanting to help someone else. If your article has helped or motivated one person in any way, then your writing has served a purpose. Yes there are benefits like name branding, credibility, free advertising, etc, but thing that counts most, is you wrote from heart and someone was helped. Remember we all learn from each other and we are all in this together.
