I couldn’t sleep last night, and no matter what I did, my anxiety grew and grew. Then this morning I woke up with a huge case of the nerves.
Self-doubt and anxiety have clawed their way into my mind.
After reading an email from my publisher about whether or not I want a table of contents, my nerves went into overdrive!!
Do I want a table of contents? Do I need one? What do I do? WHAT DO I DO?!?! Panic then shortly ensued when I realized, I have no clue what I’m doing.
I hate this feeling. The only thing that keeps me sane is the amazing writer group I’m in. I am so grateful to have a great them!
I stumbled upon a blog back in February when I got the wild idea to write a book. I’d never written a book but I’d read thousands. Surely it couldn’t’ be that hard right? And I’m only writing it for me, no one would ever want to publish it, right? It was a nice little dream until I actually thought about publishing.
So I went online in search of wisdom and found She’s Novel. By saying Kristen Kieffer’s blog is a lifesaver is an understatement. I honestly do not think I would have been able to get through all of this without her and the amazing group she created on Facebook.
At times I get anxiety or get stuck on an idea, I go log onto Shesnovel.com and usually find exactly what I’m looking for.
Today’s I came across her blog on self-doubt. I was feeling horrible this morning like I needed to delete everything and never look back again, and then I found her blog on Overcoming writing doubts.
I am so relieved that I’m not the only one that feels this way! I don’t feel alone anymore! Now it’s time to banish those fears and tackle the world!!
