Self-fulfilling beliefs can benefit a writer
Mines the psychology behind an author's self-fulfilling belief in the power of her writing, which can yield success in publication.
Notes that writing and sharing with confidence persuades others to believe in you and positively influences their perception of your writing. In other words, people tend to see your writing as powerful when you write and act with self assurance. They then act in positive ways toward you, which in turn feeds and boosts your confidence. A cycle of increasing success begins. So, believe you are a great writer, avoid arrogance, and you will free your best writing, paving a path to success.
