This week Tara is hosting a Self Lovin' Bloghop. It's really easy for writers to get down on themselves. With the rejection we encounter, the fact that there's always a different part of the craft we can improve, it can be depressing.
But there's reasons why we're writers. Reasons we endure the solitude, the hours of work with no pay, the fact that our family and friends may not understand what we do. And those reasons are because we love it, and because we're good at it.
Each of us have something we're good at. Did your English teacher exclaim over your descriptions? Do your beta readers Oooh over your characterization?
This week we're celebrating our skill as a writer.
One thing I can do well is dialogue. It wasn't always that way. I had to work hard, but now it's comfortable and I get a lot of comments on how natural it sounds. It feels good to own what I can do. To ignore all the things I'm still struggling with and say here, this is what I've learned.
What have you learned, what are you good at?
