SHALL WE DUKE?


While submitting to agents last week…
(and will till I’m done)
And working on my W.I.P this past weekend…
My creativity…
And my self-doubt…
Were duking it out in my head.
I thought I was weird…
Till his morning…
When I came upon this quote by Slyvia Plath:

“And by the way, everything in life
is writable about if you have the
outgoing guts to do it, and the
imagination to improvise.
The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt”

So?
Do you have ever have duke-fests in your head?

Always, Em-Musing

All of the time.

Absolutely! Self doubt is never far away from the surface and it sometimes takes very little for it to take me over...

I've been living with Mr Self Doubt for the last few weeks. He always comes for an extended stay when I'm up to my eyes in edits. He insists on leaning over my shoulder when I'm at the keyboard and guffawing at every word I write. Every. Single. Word. :)
