‘Don’t bother finishing that story, it’s rubbish.’
‘Really? Do you think that’s good writing?’
‘That’s probably the worst story you’ve tried to write yet.’
‘You are wasting your time. There are so many other things you should be doing.’
How do you sit down and write when you stop believing in the story you are writing? Not the content of the story, just your writing of it.
It’s not that I have writers bloc because I don’t, it’s just that I have no belief in my writing and that makes me feel it’s a waste of time.
So I’m asking you writers out there… how do you get over this? Will it pass? Do I just battle through it?
