So after completing my book a couple days ago, I went back and read through it.
Do I rewrite it? Did I say what I really wanted to say?
Do I sound too whiney? Not informative enough?
I could criticize and doubt myself for hours.
I try to remind myself how we are all our own worst critic. The most important thing is to only doubt yourself enough to analyze yourself. But, remind yourself that you’re always going to be hard on yourself.
Overly editing or thinking too hard could just make a book lose its voice.
I do plan on going through extensive edits, but I need to keep reminding myself,
“You are your own worst critic.”
