....as long as you forgive it tomorrow. :)
I'm joining the rest of Alex J. Cavanaugh's IWS groupers today, because it's just been one of those weeks, you know?
For the most part, I try to stay really upbeat and positive. Anyone who's been following my blog for awhile - at least, I hope you'll agree with that statement? (If you don't, can I bribe you with a cookie?)
But, it's hard sometimes. I am ALWAYS my own worst critic. I think I, well...pretty much suck, most of the time. I can get the best critiques in the world one day, and then turn around and find myself in tears the next day, cursing every darn word I tap/write out on my MS. I ride this emotional roller-coaster FAR too often. I'm always sure that maybe - I'm just not that good.
The thing is ~ this is no way to live life. This line of thinking will NOT get me closer to my dream. I KNOW this - and, yet - I still have those off days. Perhaps, aspiring writers are just predisposed to doubt. I do realize how foolish my doubt is. And I'll continue to persevere. I'll keep writing because it's what I LOVE to do! I know it's never too late. And I've got this wonderful writing community at my fingertips, if I need you.
I don't know that too many people know this, but my doubts and my fears kept me from really writing for YEARS! Since I've been blogging, I've met so many wonderful, positive, inspiring people! You guys keep me going. Really. You do. So, I just wanted to let you know that if you've ever had an off day like I have, you're not alone. And also just wanted to say, "Thank you." :)
