First Wednesday of the month is when we post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. This is a phenomenal group, created by the amazing Alex Cavanaugh, where writers hop around and encourage each other. Because, as it turns out, we all seem to feel like we can't do this from time to time.
I had an "I can't do this!" moment a couple of weeks ago. I was working on revisions and I just couldn't make things sound the way they were supposed to. I got very frustrated. I asked myself, "what have you gotten yourself into?" "Why did you think you could do this?"
But you know what? After ranting to my poor husband about what an idiot I was, I got back to work and I kept on working until I was happy with it. Then I stopped hating myself, took a deep breath, and laughed at myself for panicking-like a big idiot. ;)
So keep working through those "I can't do this" moments. Because if you do, then you can. :)
