Such an interesting thread, Sandra.

I think the most helpful advice I read on this theme was the point that it is not my job to judge whether my work is good or bad. Who am I to say whether someone else’s mind will or won’t be blown? That’s up to them.

My job as author is to write the damn piece to the very best of my ability, and then to put it out there.

The rest is someone else’s responsibility. 🙂

This attitude helped me combat (or at least ignore and override) a few doubt demons.
