Hi All! I wanted to check in to link to this article I wrote for the Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) blog community! I’m so excited to have been published there, and I hope you’ll check it out. I look forward to returning to blogging stronger than ever! #crazylife #2020to2021
In the NaNoWriMo blog post, I reference imposter syndrome. As an unpublished writer, I often feel this way. I beat myself up for the time I’ve wasted and feel like I’ll never be good enough because I compare myself to writers like Bandon Sanderson and Neil Gaiman who have it all together! I’ve talked about writer’s block in the past here, so I definitely know the struggle.
Recently, I’ve been kinder to myself. I’ve realized we all forge unique paths, as writers or anything else we want to be. There’s no use in focusing on what you haven’t achieved, especially when it comes to writing. There’s plenty of time to start now and make your mark!
I’d love to hear about your writing struggles, so please feel free to comment!
