My Awful, Crippling Self-Doubt and Depression

Isn't it really the only reason you read my blog?

Admit it to yourself. Admit it to me.

Then we can all get on with our lives.

I share this with all writers . . .

In my experience, the only writers I've met who were absolutely and completely convinced of their own brilliance have been talent-less hacks . . .

The great writers I've been fortunate enough to know have all harbored secret and not-secret suspcions that that they're really fooling themself and everyone else, especially once they get to page 75, and they need to take truck driving lessons soon . . .

I can't speak for anyone else, but I've only ever read it for Wierd Al talk and clips. So, for me, the blog has been absolutely KICKING lately after a long, long dry spell.

That's exactly why I read it! I love the whole "traffic accident in slow motion" flavor of your blog! The oly thing I like better is a traffic accident in fast motion.
