Releasing Writing Fears by Artemis Delmar

Releasing Writing Fears
Sharing fears of self-doubt, apprehension, and feeling that maybe no one will like my book anyway or am I making a fool of myself for thinking I could be a great writer one day. However, through dialogue with other writers, we soon discover that most of us have the same fears, as Delia so clearly writes about on her blog.


Palabras DelMar

I like writing but I am hesitant about sharing. Self-doubt, apprehension, and fear continuously rear their putrid heads over and over again.  The self-doubt and apprehension lead me to write. In part, I believe that this is an oxymoron because the fear and apprehension should make me run from the craft.

The exploration of my language leaves me at a loss sometimes. I am lost in my thoughts and words— constantly. I am lost in observation and I am lost in the wonderment of exploration. I can explore the darkest thoughts of my mind and create something truly unique or I can create a poem that embraces every romantic idea I have ever come across and yet somehow, I feel it’s never good enough.

It’s not good enough so it’s not worth sharing.

I have so many creations, characters, and plots that are begging for exposure.

They haunt my thoughts…

      • Justin, it has been a long time since I haven’t seen a comment from you anywhere. I am so glad to see you back. You are a very good writer, and I have made improvements. You know what they say, “Practice Makes Perfect!” Although, I do have a ways to go. Karen 🙂

      • Wow, can the best still yet improve?! =)
        I, myself, have been struggling, maybe “consumed” is the better word. I’m pulling it together, I hope. After a swift kick in the butt from a kindly (and not-to-strong) volunteer, I just might make it back.
        Thank you for your kind words, though. It means a lot. I hope to make that meaning into something meaningful… It’s tough as I’m sure you know. I have to find some strength. And I will, though not from any of the usual places/sources.


  1. I think a lot of us question ourselves. Writing is ultimately personal and nuanced, and we all write our stories reflecting our unique interests, voice, and style. I continually remind myself that there are all kinds of readers too! 🙂

    • I truly loved this story. It is real because there are dragons in real life of both kinds, those people who fight for goodness, kindness, and do so, with out fear, and those who perpetuate fear for their own self-centered purposes. I believe, good writing reveals a truth about human behavior that has consequences in real life and your superb writing does that. Thank you, for writing a truly great story. Karen 🙂
