Ever read a book where the character just fell flat? They sounded awkward and unrealistic and made you sad as you put the book down, realizing you just couldn't stomach it anymore? Or maybe they were that bad they just weren't good? Me too. And one of my biggest fears as I tottled down the path to writing my first book was that mine would be just as bad.
When I don’t write I feel bad about myself. Like I’m a failure and somehow not worth the food it takes to keep me alive. Harsh I know but that’s how I feel. And the longer I go without writing the worse I feel about myself. The guilt made it even harder to write. What if I sit down and I can only write crap today? Where along the line I forgot that writing it fun. It’s my escape. Getting through this was and still is not easy. But I found some solid steps to get myself and hopefully you headed in the right direction. The direction that keeps you writing and working hard to make your dreams a reality.
