Getting the Jitters

Morning everyone. I've got the jitters and, as usual, Alex J Cavanaugh has the solution.

On the first Wednesday of every month everyone signed up to Insecure Writer's Support Group can express their writing worries. (If you're interested in joining, click on the link).

Yep I'm getting the jitters. 

  • I have one book published and although it's traditionally published, the major marketing for it lies with me. And I suck at marketing. 
  • I have a book with another publisher getting ready for edits and I'm nervous about the editor's comments (worse scenario: major rewrite I'm afraid, Susan Roebuck, you got it all wrong). 
  • And I'm writing a third novel which is giving me crisis after crisis of confidence: it'll never be as good as my first novel, the plot's not working, I can't get into the heads of the characters, I'm rambling. 

Do you know? After writing all that, I think it is all a clear example of "the more you know, the less you think you know". Does that make sense? Probably not... :-(
