I am also over at Burrowers, Books and Balderdash today, talking about writing at NaNo-Speed.
Now? I'M NOT WORTHY!!!
How DARE I try to classify myself with THIS... What kind of poser am I that I think I can write books? Now THIS... THIS is a book!!!
And you know how when you read a sort of embarrassingly bad book... a book that uses words like embarrassingly and starts with pages of description or pulls a deus ex machina ending? You know how you used to wonder 'how the heck did this get published?'
NOW I fear, WHAT IF MY BOOK MAKES PEOPLE THINK THIS?
I've become a far more critical reader since I really got my writing legs under me, which in a lot of ways is too bad. I still enjoy books, but anymore there is such a pile of FEELINGS with it.
Do you ever read things that make you feel insecure?
(and don't forget to give some love to some OTHER insecure people--the link to the write for insecure writers has the list)
