For what it's worth, this link has some good bits and pieces for scriveners.

http://thoughtcatalog.com/2013/33-unusual-tips-to-being-a-better-writer/

I found the following to be most relevant to me.

"Don’t be afraid of what people think. For each single person you worry about, deduct 1% in quality from your writing. Everyone has deductions. I have to deduct about 10% right off the top. Maybe there’s 10 people I’m worried about. Some of them are evil people. Some of them are people I just don’t want to offend. So my writing is only about 90% of what it could be. But I think most people write at about 20% of what it could be. Believe it or not, clients, customers, friends, family — they’ll love you more if you are honest with them. So we all have our boundaries. But try this: for the next ten things you write, tell people something that nobody knows about you."

Lol, it's okay to give up on one dream if it's to pursue something even better :)
