There are the ubiquitous risks you know well as a writer.
The risk of no one liking your story. The risk of your story "not working" the way you had hoped or intended. The risk of spending all those hours, crafting journey that no one cares about. Being ridiculed. Judged.
Every writer faces those, sometimes on a daily basis.
As a result, it's easy to convince ourselves that we must play it safe. Follow a proven path with proven tropes, archetypical characters. But I'm not sure the world needs yet another YA dystopian novel, or yet another vampire romance. That's what happens when fear infiltrates our craft. We end up with ridiculous shows on TV (Real Housewives of _____) playing to the lowest common denominator.
You're better than that. Your voice, your message is more important to me than how well you can copy Sarah J. Maas.
So. Will you take on the biggest risk there is? Will you write your story, the way only you can tell it, irrespective of the outcome? Something that will connect with only a handful of readers who are waiting for you? That's the story I want to read.
