No words. Nothing. Over the last 5 days I’ve managed to write nothing, and I know why. It’s not because of:
WRITERS BLOCK LACK OF MOTIVATION LACK OF INSPIRATION NO SUPPORT
It’s because of that old pain in the ass – SELF DOUBT. I’ve received decent critiques, people seem to like what I write, my husband has incredible faith in me – so why am I STILL doubting myself???
I have a few short story competitions I would love to enter with the deadlines drawing near and I can’t bring myself to write for them – nothing seems good enough to me. Maybe I should pretend the competitions don’t exist and write for me – I think that’s what I should do. I am on the verge of writing, but will I actually write today? I f@*&$%# hope so. It’s amazing the power SELF DOUBT can have over someone, as I’m sure you all know.
