IWSG - September 4th


Some days you just want to give up. Even now, nearly 10 years after I decided to try to write a full-length novel (which I sold to a publisher, btw, in spite of what people tell you), I still question what the heck I'm doing in this job.

So, here's a bit of inspiration to keep pressing on and to recognize that those "failures" might actually be stepping stones to something better.

    1. Sometimes it's only in looking back that we can see the truth of our path.

  3. I do often ask myself what am I doing in my job, but mostly because of the idiots I'm surrounded with professional :) not because I doubt my absolute genius :)))

  7. Hey, if you ever stop questioning yourself, then you won't be a good writer anymore. Keep hanging in there.

  8. Yeah, those questions sure arise. I know the answer to my current job though. Paycheck! One and only reason.

  9. Been there. And it can cause a whole identity crisis when you start thinking like that. Hopefully phases like this pass...

  10. So often throughout my life I've felt like this. And I still do some days. Thank you for the reminder that disappointments and failures are street lights guiding my path to something better, to where I'm supposed to be. To where I can make a difference. I've read so many posts from our writing blogger community that has been together for so long like this. It seems we've all had a few years of valleys. But we're here, still together, and still plugging along. I'm glad.
