One of my clients once asked more or less directly for validation. Although I wanted to make him happy, I couldn’t give him the validation he sought because he wasn’t far enough into the process. The truth is, you don’t need validation before you start writing; the writing process provides such validation. If you follow the steps, do the work, and stay humble, there is no chance in the world your audience won’t appreciate what you have to say. Everyone has ideas, a message, or expertise to share; the problem is not the WHAT, it is the HOW. By expressing ideas compellingly, which can be learned, your ideas will be worth reading.
