Sometimes we writers are hard on ourselves. We beat ourselves up over what we perceive as failure or tell ourselves that we should be further along than we are, but sometimes we have to take comfort in the fact that we are getting better.
Think about that first novel you wrote vs. the one you’re writing now. World’s apart? Probably so.
We grow as writers, and we have to allow ourselves time to get better without putting constant pressure on ourselves to be everywhere but where we are supposed to be in our writer’s journey.
You’re right where you need to be. Still learning, still growing, but most importantly, getting better.
Keep writing and eventually you’ll get where you’re supposed to be.
