As an author, I constantly beat myself up about my work – day in, day out. Why haven’t I finished my work-in-progress yet? This piece isn’t edited well enough. Am I clearly defining the plot/character/location? Why isn’t my book getting as many reviews as other people’s?
I often forget to just sit back and look at what I do objectively. I wrote a book for goodness’ sake!
Do you know how many people yearn to write what is inside their hearts and never manage to actually get it down on paper? Well, I did.
So I say, forget all the stressful hard work and confidence bashing that comes with writing and, from time to time, just sit back and say to yourself – I achieved something incredible.
