Those of you interested in the creative process might want to pop over here to Wordy Girls to read my new post on how we should use the doubt we carry to fuel our creative work.

Thanks, Susan, for sharing this. I needed to read that today.

Thanks for adding us, Tracy. Sorry I’m delayed in replying. There seems to be no easy way to get my groove back.
I needed to hear that. Thanks. 🙂
You’re very welcome!
I’ll take a look. But first, I wanted you to know that I’ve been thinking about you. I’m never good about being consistent with LJ, but have felt like I haven’t seen you around as much and just wondering…hope all is well!
Ahhh! It was really about fear more than doubt, and I’m all about the fear. 🙂 My graduating lecture for my MFA was about how writers can cope with and use fear. Those who say they don’t feel it are lying, if only to themselves perhaps. Thanks for the link!
Yes, fear would have been the better choice. I was pulling old things from my old blog and didn’t clean it up.
Wish I could have heard your lecture. I am ALL about fear and trying to figure out how to use it.
Thanks for wondering about me. I’m not being consistent lately either, not with LJ or much of anything else. The move has been hard on me, emotionally and very hard physically. I’m still struggling to get it together and I anticipate it will still be a while.
I feel guilty when I post and then don’t get around to other people’s blog. Really guilty. But I don’t have enough hours in my days. Sigh.
