Whether you put them on sticky notes or in a journal, affirmations help. When the going gets tough, life gets hard, or when you get downright discouraged about yourself and negative about your writing, you can refer back to these entries and realize you're bigger and better than all that. If it's written down, you are more apt to pay attention.
Write 100 positive things about yourself, the obvious and the not so obvious, the major apparent aspects and seemingly inconsequential things. Start the list and continue to add until you get to 100.
Here are some affirmations for writers:
