111: Feel Like You’re Falling Behind In Your Writing Life?

I've long wondered if I'm falling behind in my writing life. I blog about writing (and talk about it here on the podcast), but I haven't yet published my fiction. And as I toil away on my manuscript, it seems like every other writer I see is passing me by, hot on the trail of their writing dreams. Am I falling behind? Am I working hard enough? Am I enough?

These are the doubts that I've lived with for many years, and though I'm still a work-in-progress, I've done a tremendous amount of work to overhaul my limiting beliefs and build confidence in my creative process. Have you also worried that you're failing to live up to your creative potential? Today, I'd like to share with you five hard truths I've learned in working to overcome the fear that I'm falling behind. Let's dive in.
