In the last 24 hours, I have decided to delete my blog and quit writing. I can’t do it. I have no business being a writer, I’m posing and you folks are all better educated than I am and I was kidding myself.
In the last hour, after taking a long walk, I have a protagonist, and a solid plot outline for my novel. I’m also going to work on my memoir concurrently. I’m excited as hell.
WTF you ask? I hit the wall in the last day. Self doubt crept in and opened a can of whoop ass on my confidence. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to write fiction and resigned myself to plod along on a memoir. Then I just decided to quit altogether because it was a joke…I’m no writer.
It truly does take a village and this would not have happened if not for the inspiration and support of my friends in the blogging community here at WordPress….
Thank you all, even though I don’t really know any of you…your “likes” and your comments have kept me afloat…have kept the dream alive and gotten me over the first real hump of self-doubt.
How cool is that?
P.S. I promise I’m not Bi-Polar or on psych meds…some may argue I should be, but I’d like to believe every new writer shares this experience…at least it’s what keeps me out of the doctor’s office…
