Since November of last year, I’ve been actively writing and editing my manuscript. I don’t know what will happen with this book. I have no idea if it will ever get published, but I’m hopeful.
Still, there are days (like today) when I’m not feeling entirely great about my writing. Days when I second-guess the choices my characters are making or when I overanalyze my word choices. Today, fear whispered, “you’re not good enough.” And although I believed it for a moment, I didn’t let it linger. Instead, I resorted to the power of words.
Here are five quotes that helped me today. If you’re going through something similar, I hope they’ll help you as well.
“You can always edit a bad page. You can’t edit a blank page.”
― Jodi Picoult
“The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.”
― Sylvia Plath
A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.”
— Richard Bach
"You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
--Martin Luther King
“I believe myself that a good writer doesn’t really need to be told anything except to keep at it.”
— Chinua Achebe
