Battling with Imposter Syndrome
Updated: Mar 7, 2020
What is author imposter syndrome? Who experiences it? How can we combat it?
Every writer encounters imposter syndrome, at least once. Whether you're new to being an author or are traditionally published or indie published, imposter syndrome may creep around often.
I made this video more for the writers who are brand new to being an indie author, like myself, to show a few ways how I handle it, but it applies to anyone in the creative industries.
I also talk about getting bad reviews, and how this can induce imposter syndrome, even when we're feeling great about our current work in progress. Especially for new authors. How do you handle bad reviews?
I added a few bad reviews given to famous authors in history, to show that we ALL get them. Even the greatest writers of all time.
