Writerly Insecurities


Not much time to post right now, but I wanted to jot down some thoughts while they were fresh in my mind. I wrote and posted Why I Write:  A Personal Statement because I knew there would be moments like this--when I would look at my writing and think:

1.  Who the hell am I kidding?  I have no idea what I'm doing.
2.  It's pedestrian, derivative, boring, and just plain bad. 
3.  There's so much I have to learn; I don't even know if I'm capable of learning it. 
4.  What if I just don't have anything meaningful to say?

Sometimes I think I am my own worst enemy.
