When it comes to writing, you certainly experience a fairly widespread anxiety. But today you can't help but write. On the contrary, the writing is obvious. However, it is not always easy to write precisely what you want to express. Being understood without ambiguity and choosing the right words takes experience.

Unlike speaking, which comes to us instinctively on a daily basis, writing is not an innate process. Writing is still difficult for many people, since you are usually alone with an empty page, the only one to know the desired result. Writing is therefore frightening; a fear due to lack of writing skills. Considering the traces that one leaves while writing, are afraid to leave negative clues, which could be a danger.

To write is to lay bare in front of the eyes of others

By expressing himself through writing, «we expose ourselves, we take the risk of giving the other an imperfect image of ourselves […]». So many questions arise which we most often try to answer: Am I writing correctly? Have I really written what I intend to express? Will my readers understand what I have written?

A present and persistent fear about how our recipient will perceive our writing. Will he get our message clearly? How will he judge him and give him the necessary attention?

The way you write remains one of the ways to learn a little more about yourself. And this is what most of those who embark on the experience of writing dread. The view of others on our production. In fact, it is the first thing that bothers us, given this universal apprehension to be judged by others, to be analyzed or criticized. How many of us cite the “blank page” syndrome to illustrate the barriers that prevent us from finding ideas or inspiration? In the end, this obstacle mainly boils down to fear, the fear of "writing badly"; suddenly, this fear of unwittingly showing our imperfections to readers.

Many are those who have been marked by their school career. From elementary school to high school, we all took part in essays, compositions, dissertations, essays, text explanations, etc. Writing has always been at the heart of our education; our writings generally read, corrected, and sometimes laughed at by teachers.

Forget the past to write well

As adults, we often feel this fear of being read. Although it is potentially important to make us read, we probably find it difficult to be corrected, commented on, published, mocked. What will people say about me when I read my writings? What image will I give to readers? Also, if the reader is my boss, I would also do better to avoid exposing myself and letting who I am. This is how writing can still be scary when working in a company.

Despite the fact that writing in a business is scary for many people, there are solutions. We must “just” stop writing as taught in school. Yes, this is absolutely counterintuitive, but true. Writing in business has nothing to do with literary writing. You don't have to be talented. First, fully understand the characteristics and challenges of professional writing, methods and some skills, especially practice. You will just have to go through this process and the writing will no longer scare you.
