Natalie Whipple writes here about the struggle with confidence that I have heard every writer I know struggle with at some point. Her assessment rings pretty true to me and she offers her best advice, acknowledging all the while that there is no cure and probably for good cause.
What works best for me is to remind myself that “success” as a writer (getting paid) is secondary to my passion for writing. Logically, I shouldn’t give a damn whether I’m any good, so long as I keep trying to write well.
