Every writer has doubts.
Again. EVERY writer is mired in doubt.
You and I are sitting at my kitchen table, talking this through. We both have doubts. Sure, we’ve a few writing credits to our name. A blog here. Maybe a published book or a few articles. I’ve won an award or two. I share that one writer I spoke with is on his twelfth book and called me because he’s filled with doubts.
But not like our hero writer. Not like the one we emulate. Because she’s got it all together.
