Winning the Mental War Against Doubt (Loc. Crown RM 10thFL)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Writers are sensitive creatures. Your characters are loud and demanding in your head. Your fans are loud and demanding online. What do you do when you get writer’s block? What do you do when one book flops? What do you do when the doubt demons creep in and tell you you’re a fraud, a one-hit wonder, or that you’ll never make it out there in the crazy world of professional writers. Or other fear favorites — You’re too young, you’re too old, you’re an introvert and will get eaten alive, you can’t afford to quit your day job, you will never figure out this self-publishing thing and no one will ever sign you to a deal…
First, you breathe deep. What you don’t do is go it alone. This panel will keep you out of the downward spiral, and give you practical magic on how to keep the faith and keep your eyes on the prize.
**While this panel takes special aim at author-related issues, doubt demons affect everyone in some way shape or form along the road through life. I encourage anyone who needs these tips and truths to attend this panel.
