Having Doubts...

Today, I got a new Writer's Digest in the mail. I've been paying for the subscriptions, but have had so many interruptions in life over the past year that I have not read much of any of them. 

The truth is, I enjoy writing poetry but it takes a while for me to decide whether or not I actually like what I have written. I don't know how many times I've written a poem thinking it was amazing, only to come back a couple of days later and delete my entire submission. 

Has anybody out there found themselves in this predicament?  If you have, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to post any comments that you might have. 

My excuses are plenty, but it doesn't matter how legitimate they are, I realize real writers must still be able to work through all of the hard and difficult times.

Currently, my laptop is filled with many files of poems and two different book starts. If anybody reading this  has some good suggestions, I would love to hear them.

Thank you for your time in reading this post. I will also try to work harder on reading other writer's works on this site as well.

It's time to get to work! Maybe I'll even make it to a local writer's group meeting!

Best of luck to all you in this upcoming year. May your hard work be successful and your projects many!
