Writing in the blanks
7/18/2008 8:04:14 AM
I'm in the middle of a mental slump. You wouldn't think so by my actions. I write very day, for six or eight hours. I'm excited about my story and desperate to tell it.

But I keep wondering if it's worth it. Who will read what I write? And will it make any difference in their lives? Besides that, I'm going broke. My husband is retired so we depend on our investments to keep us going. And we all know stocks are plummeting.

I'm tempted to (gasp!) get a job. For real money!

So while I ponder that question, I live in limbo, concerned that I'll miss the chance to make a difference, to share my story, to live my dream, all the while concerned I'll lose my shirt in the process.

Where am I called? What should I be doing? I have no idea. So I'll wait until I know, and write my head off in the meantime.

Let me know what keeps you going. How do you fend off the temptation to quit writing?
