Vardan Partamyan (vardanpartamyan) | 9 comments I am always in doubt of my abilities, but it is yet to stop me from writing :) I let the reader be the judge...

I always write to please myself first.

J.R. Brule (jrbrule) | 2 comments I have doubts about my writing every single day. I blogged about overcoming mental obstacles while writing fiction, but that doesn't lend any permanent solutions. To get my latest novel published, it took daily effort and persistence. Even now, getting it noticed requires that same effort, and writing the next one more still. But at least I have it out there now, and it serves as a reminder that I can do this writing thing.

Check out my book here, and sorry for the long link. http://www.amazon.com/Mind-Trap-J-R-B...
