Self-Confidence

Wow my self-confidence took a dive today. There are a lot of articles on the internet about how self-published novels are lower quality. Obviously I don’t believe this. Well, what I mean is not all self-published content is poor quality. Some is and some isn’t. The same can be true of anything published by a big publisher. Seriously have you read the Twilight series?

But recently I’ve come across a lot of articles and it’s really making me doubt myself and my work. It doesn’t help that I haven’t really sold anything recently, though I haven’t released anything recently so I believe that’s playing a part. I’m clinging to the fact that I actually have a couple of non-family reviews that are positive, so they’re probably not complete crap. Still it’s difficult.

I think most people go through periods of self-doubt, I’m just trying to pull myself out and do my best.

Writing Goal:

-Finish writing the current draft of Book Two

-While I’m letting that rest, go through and do corrections to Stolen Memories and update the copies everywhere

Self-Publishing Goal:

– Once finished corrections of Stolen Memories upload to all websites that it isn’t already on

  1. I can really relate to this feeling. I have major bouts of low confidence, usually when I read articles about self publishing and how awful it is, etc. But I’ve learned to ignore them more now, people just like to be negative about anything they can at times. You should feel a boost in confidence just for the fact you put your work and stories out there into the world. That is an incredible achievement in itself!
