H****** myself

I'm really h****** myself with my writing. I write something, analyze, cringe, analyze, delete or toss in the bin. It's how all my writing goes. All of it. It makes me so mad. I hate it, I hate it. Everyone else makes it seem so easy and so not... hard! And what makes me even more mad is that half the time they don't even want to be writers or anything and they are so much better than I. I know this sounds like a pity party, but I am honestly tired of it. Sigh.

  • I have a similar problem, except I drive myself to the brink analyzing my writing. I know that my writing is superior because people have expressed their jealousy, but they can't see that it's ripping me apart. I have panic attacks and have been diagnosed with OCD and depression. I could never tell anybody because it all seems so silly. It is important, dammit! Writing feels like an extension of myself, so if I don't look good on paper, what is the point?

  • Writing is a craft. Keep working at your craft, demanding perfection and analyzing. You are doing yourself proud. There are so many illiterate people communicating with the written word online and they look like gutter fools. Stand out above them with what you do. It will serve you well in life.
