It’s Tuesday, I am a day late with my post on writing…

Dealing with your doubt

And again, here are my unpublished and inexperienced two cents…
Honestly, I have no advice to add to this. Of course, I understand it all and I know you have to slog through it all to get the book done. It’s just that I struggle with doubt so much that I’ve developed a rather healthy case of procrastination that keeps me from writing, so I don’t have to worry about the doubt. Instead, I get to worry about not writing, and about never finishing which is then followed by a good dose of self criticism over my inability to get my butt in front of my computer. So, like the writer’s in Kevin’s conversation, I am a weird jumble of neuroses most of the time.
I think I am just about ready to jump back into the quicksand of rewriting my work in progress. It’s time to set up a schedule and just get it done. Onward and upward, right?
