I mean, obviously no. I have the same insecurities just more nuanced and flavored with experience. This month I'm struggling with the thought of ever finishing. I write more slowly than ever before. In 2019, I edited a book, and rewrote another book. I told myself I'd be done with editing the second book as well, but... Needless to say, I gave the book the time it needed, and it still needs time. It's such a time sink, I almost abandoned it for the greener pastures of a shiny new idea (which is now over a year old at this point). But I didn't, I stayed the course, and the book is starting to be some of the best work I've ever produced, and I'm very impatient about it all.
So tell me, do you struggle with how long writing takes? I see my friends getting agents and landing deals, and I'm just over here polishing a novel I've been working on forever.
