This question might have been more philosophical two or three months ago. Today, however, it's quite personal. Over the last few weeks, I've struggled with my writing goals and even questioned whether or not I should continue. I have gotten positive feedback from fellow writers, but as of yet have received nothing but negative responses from those in the industry who actually make the decisions. I've pressed forward as best as I can, but it's difficult to sell a product (even if that product is your own art) if you don't believe in that product.
So that brought me to ask myself, "How do I continue my work if I have no confidence in myself?" And my only answer is this: to regain my confidence I must push forward and create positive results. I must learn from every failure, continue sending out my work, and improve my writing every chance I get.
If anyone has advice on other ways to re-instill my confidence, I'm more than willing to hear them. Please share with my readers and me because I know all of us can, at one point or another, use the boost.
