It's that other time again... the time where I sit here and wonder if my writing sucks. No worries. It's a phase and part of the whole process. It's one I'd like to get rid of, frankly, but I'm not sure what kind of writer I'd be if I didn't doubt myself from time to time.
I mean, think about it. If you always thought that everything you did was without flaw, why would you ever feel the need to make it better? Why bother editing?
Of course, there's the other side of the coin... if you never feel it's free from flaws, why stop editing? Edit until it's perfect. Except it's never perfect.
Is this perfect? Oh, hell no. I'm not sure any good writer sends his work out into the world feeling it's perfect. Okay, maybe I can think of one, but she was a whole other level and she's dead, so I can't ask her if she was racked with doubt from time to time.The key here is to balance the self-doubt with reality. Are my feelings of total suckage true or is this just a phase?
