I went for years not finishing anything. Because, of course,
when you finish something you can be judged.
– Erica Jong
I chose this week’s quote because I feel it is a description of my writing life. I still have files of incomplete stories. And the story and book I published have, in terms of sales and readers, been abject failures, despite good reviews. Yes, I do not like being judged and rejection has paralyzed me. But, I keep writing and plan to self-publish more. What makes you rise above negative judgement?
