Why does writing have to fill the writer with an overwhelming feeling of self-doubt? I know 90% of the time my story is good, its original (mostly) it's intriguing... and most of all it would make a damn good book.
But of course that 10% of the time I think I am wasting my time, no way my book will ever be published, I don't know how to write, this is too much work, this is out of my league, I am sick of sitting in front of my computer... I should just stop and save myself from being embarrassed.
I know everyone who has tried to write any piece of work has felt these feelings. If you stop and listen to them you'll never make it... and that's a guarantee.
Keep your head down and keep writing, if you need help get it after your first draft is done, if you don't know the exact terminology or proper procedures of what you main char does for a living... make it up and fix it later. If you stop and lament on what you don't know you'll never get done... that's a guarantee.
Keep writing; keep growing, keep learning. Once you have finished your first draft, go back and make it work. Never give up, never listen to that self-doubt.
I hope you all find the desire to finish your manuscripts, I hope you all find success. Thx for all the support you have shown me.
There is one guarantee I can make, and that is I will finish my book. I will make it the best I can, and I’ll get all the help I need to make sure it is.
If you have anything to share about the writing process please do so.
Thx for reading, and for any comment you might leave.
