I've struggled a lot with writing recently. Not just with Nanowrimo, but personally, which is way more apparent with the frequency I've been posting on my blog. Inspiration has been rare, and it's even harder when you have little ones tugging at you. But this is how I know it's right-
-I feel weird if I go too long without it-
-Once I do write, it feels as if a weight has been lifted off my chest-
-Writing helps ease my anxiety-
-I get attached to my story and my characters-
-I get concerned I haven't given my projects enough of myself-
-I am terrified to look at my own work -
That last one is a little counter productive, but If I didn't care, or If I wasn't smart enough to know how much work something needed, I wouldn't worry about it. I've watched as individuals, so eager for success, put out bad novellas and books just to be told it sucks on Amazon. It's scary, and I could easily be one of those people. But, I hold myself to a higher standard. I'm not going to put something out there that can be seen forever if I'm not proud of it. I'm going to keep it quality and let the rest follow, that's all you can really do anyway.
