You have talent. TONS of talent. You don’t need self confidence. Your amount of talent is a gift and with all gifts, just get out of the way and allow your gift to do what all gifts do…give to those who need your gifts. You are a writer…..in every sense of the word “writer.” Ms. DD, just do what you do, when you do it, how you do it. The rest is all gravy,,,,baby.
It is after midnight, and as I sit here, mulling my progress in life, it hits me. I am exactly where I need to be right now. I never really saw myself as a writer. I always dabbled in everything else, but my writing, although many times I sneaked a write in my journal, was never taken seriously. My father-in-law, a published author, and English professor (may he rest in peace), once told me, after reading a story I had written, that I should be published. I laughed, secretly thinking he was nuts. Secretly, I was petrified!
Self-confidence, I’m not sure I know what that is. Oh, I know many people who have it. I am not one of them. Could this be why my WIP is sitting, waiting, growing old? Or is it me who is growing old? Maybe it’s both. This probably makes no sense to all…
