Say it with me!

I am a good writer!

Look at yourself in the mirror and say it three times. Hell, say it more if you need to. Say it until you believe it.

We have those days where doubt creeps into our minds. We think we are terrible. We think no one will ever like our stories. We wonder if people will laugh at us after reading our words. We hear whispers and think people are saying terrible things; calling us hack writers and suggesting a kindergartner has more of a vocabulary.

Don't allow those thoughts and feelings to stop you.

Look in the mirror and tell yourself you are good. Always keep writing.

Yes! Although, my nieces and nephews have a leg up, they can cite words from Webster's and the Urban Dictionaries.
Good to read since I'm going through a big bout of doubt.

But it's so hard to say! LOL I always wonder if I'm lying to myself.

Great cover for your book on the sidebar! I love it!

Very wise words. I've been going through a slump with my writing lately, so it helps to have this reminder:)
