Self doubt kills creativity.
I've had my share of moments when I wondered if all the hours upon hours I spent writing would ever matter, and that maybe I had wasted all that time on nothing.
I was wrong. It did matter. Every word mattered.
We all need a little encouragement now and again so I hope this post finds you when you need it the most.
You Should Keep Writing Because ....
#1. The characters you love need you to exist. Do it for them.
#2. If you didn't write you'd be miserable or totally lost or felt like you'd slept too long and couldn't remember what you went down into the basement looking for.
#3. People going through horrible things in their lives need books to escape. Someone, somewhere, someday will NEED your book.
#4. It will be so gratifying to prove the doubters wrong.
#5. Let's face it, you started writing for a reason, so why stop?
No go sit your butt back in the chair and WRITE WITHOUT FEAR.
Why do you write?
