Insecure. Still.

Hi there! It's the First Wednesday once again...



Welcome to my blog for another post where I tell you about all my little insecurities. Or at least some of them.

Ok only one today, but it's a big one.

I have this short story I wrote some time ago, a horror story, and I've been editing and re-editing and leaving it be for a long time now. Some of my bloggy writerly friends have read it and given me some pointers, but still, I'm not happy.

I mean I like the story, but I don't have the confidence to let anyone I know less well than my writing group buddies. Never mind actually trying to get it published.

So yes, I'm insecure. Really, really, insecure. And I'm incapable of letting go of my 'babies'.

*sigh*

What don't you like? What doesn't your writing friends like? Don't give up on it and keep looking for the answer. And when it's ready, just go on faith and let it go into the world.

Toss it over to me to have a look. Maybe I can help out. I love me a good horror short. I know how hard it is to let go of your writing. But if you aren't happy with it, how can you expect anyone else to be. Good luck!

Books, like babies, just need a little TLC and they grow into wonderful creations ready for the world. Don't give up.

I've got a couple of those tucked away. Loved them as I started then hit a meh about it. Didn't seem to matter what everyone else said.

Aww, that is a challenge. Though I look up to you for being able to write the piece. I just cannot get a handle on the genre of horror. No matter what I try. I do envy those that can submit stories. It's something I want to work on but at the same time struggle since my focus is the novel side.

Sometimes a story is for you, or practice or other reasons that mean they don't get sent out. It happens. But other times we have to learn to let them go.
