“Pesky Little Critters” and “What Ifs”
If you want to write, you probably will regardless of the obstacles that come your way.
More likely than not, there will be times when it seems no end is in sight to those pesky little critters who nibble at your self-confidence, swallow up precious hours you had scheduled for writing, and gobble up that idea you were sure you had no need to write down last night before falling asleep, because it was just too good to forget.
Been there, done that. Join the crowd.
The more I listen to other writers, the more I realize I am not the only writer who is confronted by the “What Ifs “. The best advice I can give you concerning “The What Ifs” is to not worry about them. I will not tell you they are likely to never occur because many of them will. If they do, they do. When they come, handle them the best way you can.
You don’t necessarily have to face them alone, however. Having friends who are also writers can help tremendously. If you can find a writers’ group, help is often only an e-mail, text or phone call away. If you join a writers’ group whose members are not helpful, quit and go elsewhere. I know I would not be as far along in my writing as I am, if not for the support of my writers’ group!
