It’s that time of the month again ;) Nooooo, not that time of the month, this time……
I can safely say that I am fully over deciding to bin the WIP, well, it’s the previous WIP now isn’t it? Lol ;)
So what am I feeling insecure about this month? Everything……
My regular readers will know I was trying to write a pocket novel recently, and it’s because of that that I decided to attend Kate Walkers Introduction to Romance course at Caerleon.
Well, what an eye opener! I don’t really know what I thought a Mills & Boon novel was but, I now know its right up my street :)
I love doing characters and I love emotional conflict. And that’s basically what a Mills & Boon Modern romance is. So guess what the plan is? Yep, that’s right, I want to try my hand at writing a Mills & Boon Romance! ;)
Kate was very inspiring. She’s written 60 books and made me feel that yes, I can do it, well, that’s how I felt at the end of every session….that is, until I got home lol.
Now I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed, a bit, I dunno, useless? Ha ha ha :) Seriously, I’m doubting that I have even the tiniest ounce of writing talent. At this current moment I’m thinking there’s no way I could ever match Kate Walkers writing abilities.
Caerleon was excellent, being surrounded by all those writers. But, sometimes, when I’m at those events I feel alienated, and that I haven’t got a hope in hell of being published *deep sigh*
So am I just kidding myself? Will I ever have the stamina, determination, and talent to match Kate Walker? This is a major self pity post, I know lol. I’m not looking for sympathy, and I know I’m not alone in feeling like this…..but sometimes, it’s just good to wallow ;)
So what are you feeling insecure about today?
