Do I Really Have What It Takes?

I struggled with whether or not I should even post this. It’s pretty depressing. But here goes…..

I’m doubting my ability to write this book. I have no confidence in my writing. I know nothing about writing a book. Nothing at all. All I have are different pages open in Word with a bunch of mumbo jumbo. Nothing that is worth anything.

I’ve been reading books on writing a book and while there are great tips, I just can’t make it materialize into anything. It’s so frustrating. I have compiled a bunch of research on my topic.

I get so distracted….I can’t focus…arrrghh. I’m so frustrated with myself. I’ve tried the whole setting a timer and writing without stopping.

I’ve got nothing.

I don’t know what else to do anymore. I thought I was a writer.

And yes, I’m having a pity party. I know I am. I just…ughhh…I don’t like this feeling.

I thought I had given these negative thoughts to the Lord but I must be holding onto a small thread somewhere without realizing it.

I’m going about all this the wrong way.

I need prayers, y’all. I need to get out of this funk. I need to stop wallowing in self pity.

  1. Leigh regarding your recent post “Do I Really Have What It Takes?” I have a lot of posts I’ve written concerning writing. The section is called Writing Tips. Here are two I pray help you in some small way… and Stay encouraged. It’s not as bad as you think. God always gives us a way of escape we just have to pray for it and then use it. Have a great week—Blessings and Peace!
