IWSG: The Truth is...

It's the first Wednesday of the month and time for another round of the Insecure Writer's Support Group hosted by the amazing Alex J. Cavanaugh!

Okay guys, it's time I tell you the truth. The truth is... I struggle. Ha, you guys already knew that! This is IWSG after all.

Am I good enough? Will I ever write the way I want to? Will I ever sell books the way I want to? That unknown future is a frightening thing. Even more than that, you never know how you'll be received by strangers. Of course, this business is so subjective, not everyone's going to love you, that's a guarantee.

Still, it doesn't stop me from wondering. Can I do it? Will I be good enough?

It won't stop writing, it's my passion, but I can't help pondering upon my skills. Am I'm really cut out for how many hours I put in?

The truth is, I'm always going to be insecure. The truth is, I'll question my work. But the truth is, I wouldn't change a thing if I had the choice to do it all again.
