Not for the Faint of Finger

I'm puzzled by the number and depth of hand-holding blogs for writers.  I shall not name any, but they're not hard to find.  It raises what strikes me as a moral question:  should people so timid and clueless that they need to be told "it's okay" ten times a day be encouraged to be the new generation of writers?  How will someone so artistically uninspired and undriven that she needs another person's blog for courage ever roar through with an original voice?

I'm just askin.'  What do I know? But it seems unfair to expect that person to live the necessarily frightening life of a creative artist. You can't 12-step through this one, it seems to me.
