Do you ever feel unqualified to be a writer? Like you don't have the experience, or training? Half the time I write I feel like no one will ever like what I write... urghhhhh


@Jacobevans I'm wholly indifferent as to whether anyone assumes to think I'm qualified or skilled enough to be a writer. They are concepts that simply don't exist.

You write, therefore you are. Write for yourself, for your inspiration. Write for your compulsion, your inner Muse. Write to soothe the obsession, because you need to. Write for therapy and write for joy.

Don't write for other people, people who may judge or belittle.
