Confidence in one’s writing is a funny thing. Sometimes I love something I write but nobody wants to publish it. Other times I think something I’ve written is just fine but it gets praise. So I do my best to not focus too much on other people’s opinion of my writing when deciding if I am confident in it. I try to write things that feel true to me, that express something that matters to me. It’s not always easy for me to find that internal compass when it comes to my writing, but I strive for that all the time.
