Wayne and Leah talk about the dreaded Self-Doubt that can kill your writing and stop your creativity dead in it’s tracks. Those nagging doubts and niggling voices can really affect our productivity and our mental well-being.
We discuss some mental tricks and techniques that we have found useful to banish those demons – at least temporarily anyway!
Surrounding yourself with the right people, pushing on with your first draft and remembering that you are only ever competing with yourself are all great ways to stay positive and get the work done.
What are YOUR hints and tips for dealing with self-doubt? Let us know in the comments or tweet us your ideas.
Tweets of the week came courtesy of Darlene Foster with a blog about ‘Making your scenes earn their way’ and Torre DeRoche with a link to a Huffington Post piece called ‘Dear Self-Published Author – DO NOT Write 4 Books a Year!’
Also, apologies, we did have some technical issues with the audio later on in the show, but hopefully it won’t spoil your enjoyment too much and rest assured all will be back to normal next week.
