Beth Cook asked Kate DiCamillo:

They say that all aspiring writers sometimes think, "I'm terrible at this, I'm a fraud, there are so many better writers than me, no one is ever going to publish or read this stuff, I should get a sensible career," (etc). I know I sometimes think this way. Did you experience this when you were starting out, and if so, how did you work through it?

Kate DiCamillo Oh, Beth. I experienced that when I was starting out. Yes. And I experience it every day still. I doubt myself. I do the work anyway.
