It’s true that most writers have been doubted. Especially when they had nothing to show the doubters. It’s understandable really because while one person was talking all the other person saw was a dream.
It’s also true that many have given up on their dream in the face of doubt. Somehow that voice on the outside gets on the inside and wears away at the vision.
But others, while they may hear the voices, pay them no mind. They nod as if in agreement and let it pass.
Then they get on with what they said they were going to do. Often in silence so as not to hear the words.
Then they show up with their finished product. At that point they can’t even hear the words – they see the faces of those who said they would never do it.
As time goes on it doesn’t matter at all. The writer did what they said they were going to do and they are focused on their own affairs. They have a new life they gave to themselves.
On occasion they will remember the look on the faces of those who doubted them.
But then they are back at it, either working on some new project or just enjoying their own life.
