The sine wave that is my personal writerly confidence is at a pretty low point right now, which sucks, but I have found a silver lining in amongst the clouds. I know that it’s a phase, that it will pass.
Knowing that, though it may not feel like it now, eventually, if I keep writing, that feeling will pass. That knowledge helps me keep writing, even when it hurts. Especially when it hurts.
Insights like this really make me feel like I’m beginning to understand my writing process more, and in doing so, I’m learning more about myself. As a writer. As a person. It’s a good feeling.
How about you? What sorts of insights have you had into your writing process lately?
