IWSG: Let It Out

It's the first Wednesday of the month! Time for the Insecure Writers Support Group!

I wasn't going to post anything today becasue I just got done with the A-Z madness and I thought I'd be all blogged out. However, my insecurities are taking over today and I need to vent.

Normally, I hate to be a downer. If I post something negative I at least try to leave it on a positive note, but I can't promise anything with the mood I'm in.

So this past month I've been doing a lot of beta reading (for me that is. I'm not Christa Desir). I haven't read a single published book becasue of it, even though I've been exceeding my book a week goal, and believe it or not, that's left me insecure.

I know this will go away, but right now I feel like everyone is better than me and I'll never amount to anything becasue I can't compare to the awesomeness.

Yes, I shouldn't compare myself. But... it's kinda hard when you put yourself out there and risk criticism from strangers.

In all seriousness, I'll get over it. I'll find a writing groove and think I'm a genius for about 5 seconds. Until that time I'm just going to fake it until I make it.
