There is a point in every WIP, when the author sits down and looks at what they have written, and they think: I am a terrible writer.
Take heart, dear friends. The odds are, that you are not a terrible writer. In fact, you are quite probably a great writer. That voice is a trickster.
A nefarious little creature that resides in fear and self-doubt.
The only known way to rid yourself of the grasp of this dark and vile thing, is to persevere. Push though the nagging sing song mockery of that little voice, and finish that WIP with determined gusto. I promise, if you do, the Anti-Muse will surely starve.
Hang tough, friends!
Happy and persistent writing!
