A lot of writers ask whether they're good enough to write. This question always confuses me a little. Why do you need to be good at something you love to do? I wish writers wouldn't confuse "being good at writing" with "being good enough to get published". That's like people not playing basketball in the neighborhood because they never made it to the NBA.
When I feel a story starting to develop in my head, I don't think about it being published. When the words start flowing on the screen, I don't think about it being published.
That is just a part of who I am.
Stories will always come out and be put down on paper. I have hundreds of stories (okay...a little hyperbole, but it's my blog so it's okay) in my computer. Most of them will never see the light of day, but I enjoyed the hours I spent writing them.
A few of those will be attractive to publishers and editors and by extension the public. That is a great thing for a writers ego, but it's not the driving force for me. For me the driving for is seeking out the next inspirations...whether they're publishable or not.
Good writing all! Keep inspired.
