I've been wondering…how do I really know if I'm a talented writer? I mean, if I send things out and no one publishes them, am I awful? Friends and family aren't necessarily unbiased when reading something I've written. I mean, there are things I've written that I feel are good. That I am proud of, that I genuinely like. But how do I know if I'm any good? Who's to say? If I am never published, how do I ever know whether what I write is good or not?
Success to me is just DOING it, I'm not saying I will never be happy unless I have a book published. As much as I may get down about it, in my heart I do believe that as long as I am sharing my words, that is success enough for me. I just have to remember that in those moments of self-doubt!
