Grateful for Glimmertrain

Lately it happens with increasing occurrence and escalating alarm. ‘It’ happens like this; I’m reading a book, a great book, really enjoying the story, the characters, and their journey. And then the realization sinks in like a virus, aching in my bones, knocking me to my knees; I’ll never write this good, or live long enough, work hard enough, fine tune my skills enough to write the story that’s trying to find its way out of my head. It occurs to me over and over again I don’t have the writing chops to do my story justice. And then, I read an article like this one in Glimmertrain….

Why write when others do it so well?????

    It isn't possible for others to write your stories better than you can. You are a unique individual with your own perspective and POV. The trick is to write your stories as well as YOU can without worrying about what others are doing.
