Self-doubt is awesome!

One of those days, again. I’m writing, getting what feels like good stuff down, but then I stop a moment and look back over what I’ve got so far and think:

Who wants to read this? It’s boring.

And I’m having a hard time refuting it. I mean, I think it’s really interesting and very dramatic, with some great twists and turns, but, as usual, I wonder if anyone else will.

Obviously, I’m way too close to it right now to make any such decisions, and I will have time in revision to make any changes I feel are necessary, but knowing this and accepting it are two different things. It’s hard not to look at things now and question my direction.

I wonder if this self-doubt ever goes away.

On the other hand, it pushes me to make sure I’m putting in my best effort.
