So, looking at the date of my last post, I’m astounded to see that it took me 2 years to recover from that doubt phase.
Well, maybe a year and then I decided to get back in the game, because I love writing, and it’s the journey that is beautiful not the end road.
So I joined an amazing course at the writersworkshop. It was the self-edit your novel class, run by the wonderful and amazingly talented Debi Alper. There I learn a lot, was hit with light bulbs moments, some great, so ego crashing, but it helped me so much. And last but not least I have found a group of amazingly suppportive and talented writers.
We have kept in touch after the course had finished. We still critique each other’s work. One of us has a novel out in march, which is so exciting!!
So if you’re like me, hit by doubt but still wanting to get going, all I can say is “find your heard”. That is find a class or a critic group with like minded and kind people. Who will offer you honest but not heart breaking feedback on your work. It’s not easy to find, true. But it is so important.
So go out there!! Make it happen. Only you, can.
