  1. Reblogged this on The apocalypse probably wouldn't be a good time to write, so lets do it now. and commented:

  2. The problem with the things you tell yourself is that you also tend to tell them to other people. And before those people have a chance to make their own judgements of you, they take your judgements. They think you re undisciplined, or a bad writer, or not funny.

    • It’s amazing how often we can sabotage ourselves that way. And even if people notice that our actual abilities don’t match what we’ve told them, then they still have a negative impression because what we told them wasn’t true (“she must just be lazy,” “he’s begging for compliments,” etc.).
