I'm not writing this to get affirmations of my worth as a writer, I'm just putting it out there that working in a creative field can be tough on a person's confidence. Some days, every sentence written is another one deleted. Even sitting in front of the computer becomes an internal shouting match:
"You can do this! It's a simple re-write! Just one page!"
"You suck! Your work is crap! Your fingers don't even belong on the keyboard!"
Most days, I work through this shouting until the naysaying is minimized, but some days (or in this case, a week), I can't bear the thought of trying.
Writing is hard.
But, you know, if you want to be a writer, don't let me discourage you.
