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.
