One of the reasons it’s taken me more than nine years to get through only four drafts is mostly self-doubt. Yup, like most of you, I suffer from it too. Actually, who doesn’t? Well, maybe Tom Brady, Meryl Streep, and John Waters.
Lately, I’ve been battling the lack of self confidence by simply plowing through it. In other words, I just keep writing no matter what. Sometimes it works and I get into a nice little groove. Other times, well I pretty much toss out that stuff the next day. Like a runner in a marathon, when you’re unsure you can get to the finish line, just think of the next mile.
