I’ve been lazy the last week and a half, I haven’t been focused on any of my WIP so I’m falling behind.
The thing is I’m kind of stuck and slightly discouraged. I recently posted a short story called “Turning Pointe’, which was completely out of my comfort zone. I am not a romance writer but some how that story just went in that direction. Now I’m not ashamed of writing a story that under normally circumstances I probably would not have written, in fact I am proud that I actually did something out of my bubble. But maybe that should not have been posted as a first story because unintentionally that became a representation of me as a writer, considering there are no other works up on my blog to weigh it against.
I dunno, its just that fear of failure and living up to expectations especially when people you actually know come across your work and make back hand, ambiguous comments about what makes a good story instead of straight out critique. I’d appreciate it more if someone told me respectful what they did or did not like.
But then again, why do I have to explain myself?
Anyway, my lunch break is almost over…
Here, have a meme!
