Validation for writers doubt


I refuse to stay in this place, we all have moments of feeling exhausted from very hard work and needing some validation in return.

That validation could tell me I touched someone, I wrote a good Novel, I am unique, most of all to remember I am a writer.

I was just thinking of a few things that can turn this slump into a self animated solution.

Writing is such a lonely job, but…………………….

  1. I absolutely need to remind myself I love it, truly can’t imagine my life without it.
  2. if I write for myself first, I can drop business and success expectations that weigh heavy on my mind.
  3. Doubt– I have to remember with any project so dear to ones heart and does creatively take all you have, doubt is normal.  Give myself permission to have doubt then remember points 1 and 2 and rid of doubt.
  4. Successful writers write
  5. I have to remember to stop predicting if my Novel is well received and that sales are no indication of this.
  6. Stop feeling sorry for myself by not understanding where my novel will go.  I may never know.
  7. Writers block is part of the craft.  In fact it is during these black outs I write the most-about nothing-then suddenly I find I am writing and the block lifts.
  8. Obsessive I am and have spread myself to thin by the number of writing sites I write for.  I must force myself to let many of them stand still while I pick my favourite three and work with those.
  9. As hard as it is for me I want to start talking with other writers share knowledge and get to know writers to talk with in general.
  10. Lastly, I must take breaks starting tomorrow :o) as I never do.  Walk away from the computer and do something not related to writing, including thinking about it.

Here’s hoping…………………

really hoping

Thank you

    Hi Kimberly,
    Thanks for the follow. And I hear you, this is a lonely profession. A quiet journey riddled with doubt and fear. But I applaud your effort and your strength to share it with all of us. I hope you get in a break, but keep on writing. 😉

    You are a wonderful writer with so much to share. Your outpouring of words leaves you from time to time feeling drained. Your novel will be read by many. These things take time when done outside the mail outlets. Your voice is important and your voice will be heard.

    And Mike you are an awesome person XO
