It seems like forever since I wrote anything. I have been under the weather, and that has been my excuse for the last two weeks, but if I am honest, my lack of writing is due to a completely different reason. I seem to have lost confidence in my writing.
Every time I go to write, I am plagued by endless doubts – does what I write make sense, my grammar isn’t correct, my use of punctuation is often not correct, why would anyone want to read this stuff anyway?
Today I decided to write anyway. So what if it doesn’t make sense, and who cares if all my doubts are true? Isn’t my love of writing the most important thing?
I’m not going to ask any more questions for fear that it will send me off on another battle with my writing insecurities.
I’m off to write instead.
