Insecure Writer's Support Group (created by our Ninja Captain Alex Cavanaugh) meeting, I will say that I'm insecure about my writing... in general.
I know that it can take years and years and books and more books, revised and rewritten, but it feels like forever from now. I've been stuck writing my current MS (Summer of Lies) since this summer. Normally, I love first drafts, but I can't seem to finish it, and at the same time, this idea seems to be blocking any new ideas.
Yep. I'm feeling insecure that I can even finish this novel and if I do, will it just suck? I feel like I have a pile of books in my computer of novels that will never be good enough to be published. Or maybe, I feel like I'll never be a good enough writer. I'm down in the dumps about writing. I had plans to write today, but then my cat ate my headphones earlier this week and I don't have the money to go buy new ones until pay day. Then I just decided to sit home and watch a movie. I pushed writing to the side.
I'm really having a hard time believing that I can make it. I really want to be happy with where I am as a writer and continue to improve, but I'm stuck in a rut. :(
