IWSG: Doubting yourself

Welcome to the first Wednesday of the month. It's time for another round of the Insecure Writer's Support Group created by the genius Alex J. Cavanaugh!

This month I wanted to talk about doubting yourself. We've all done it. In fact, that was the entire reason this group was started. Even Alex, whom we all look up to, has had his moments.

Today, rather than talking about my insecurities I simply wanted to share a message of hope.

This too shall pass.

We all have moments where we think we aren't good enough to write the kind of story we really want to. Maybe we've even written a story and now we see that it isn't going to work like we hoped.

I'm here to tell you that I've been there. I've come through it. I'm getting stronger with each mistake. I know someday I'll get where I want to be. Why? Because I didn't quit trying.

All those doubts haven't passed for me, but I do have moments where I can see a sliver of who I can become with hard work. That's enough to keep me going.

Keep your chin up and your fingers on the keyboard. This too shall pass.
