SELF DOUBT AND GRAND DELUSIONS

Is it only writers who can swing from thinking everything they’re writing is crap to then having grand daydreams of international best selling success that makes JK Rowling look poor?

A wonderfully affirming writers’ meeting this morning with Marion and Erica helped restore equilibrium. Join a writers’ group people, one that supports and critiques – it’s the best way to grow your writing, and stay sane in this business of nerve wracking waiting, lows of rejections and highs of success.
