Second Guessing

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever get back to a level that I can be proud of as a writer.

I keep trying though. All those years of sitting on my hands and hoping that I would figure out how to do it only made things worse. Second guessing yourself is the worst thing you can do as a writer or any kind of artist.

If you second guess every word you write none of them will ever be good enough. If you double check the placement of ever single comma, your sentences will feel awkward and clunky. If you doubt your punctuation non of your writing will flow easily to the reader. So always remember in the midst of your worst doubts and your worst cases of writing block brought on by those doubts, don’t guess just do.

When it’s done, that’s the time to analyze and pick it apart. Not before. Not halfway through. Never ever in the beginning.
