  1. I'm going through the same darn thing! I believe my Inner Critic is a snotty little kid who keeps chanting over and over again "Na-Na-Na-Na-Na! You suck!!" Then she sticks her tongue out at me and spits all over the place. She has pigtails and freckles and is straight out of Anne of Green Gables. Editing Fluff and Nonsense has made her come out even more often. When I'm writing, I can lose myself in the story, it's afterward, when I can take a step back and asses the situation, that my self-deprecation really comes out to play. Anywho! I love this post. It makes me feel like I'm not alone. *hugs*

  2. Boy did I need to be reminded of all this today. Started rewrites on my current WIP last night and managed a whalloping……189 words.Ouch.I think your method is my best one, too – to show my writing to other people and get the "hard core non-suckage proof" because golly, that's what you hang on to when things get really tough. I'm pressing on now because I know my draft is better than it was, and there were people out there who liked the original drafts, ugly as it was. Of course, they also gave feedback on how to improve it,so that's an added plus.Accountability. Accountability is KEY.
