The struggle is real.

I started writing My Turn To Hurt You this morning. Only 300 words into the first chapter, and I’m already doubting myself. Is this good? Will anyone actually care about the characters and story?

When it comes to being a ghost writer, it’s easy to take a plot and characters and dive right in. I can pump out a 80k novel in three weeks or less. So, what the hell is so different about writing for myself?

Writing has always been an intimate process for me. Whatever I’m struggling with at that particular moment in my life will pop up in a story in one form or another.

I started this blog because I wanted to share my struggles and goals with other authors who are like me– just now finding the courage to write for themselves. The struggle to get past your own insecurities and doubts is real.

So, here’s my plan to get through it.

Just write the damn story.
