Self Doubt

Writer Richard Bausch in OFF THE PAGE: WRITERS TALK ABOUT BEGINNINGS, ENDINGS,
AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN

Quote found in Oprah’s magazine January, 2008


A WRITING LESSON


“I don’t teach writing. I teach patience.


Toughness. Stubbornness. The willingness to fail. I teach the life.


The odd thing is most of the things that stop an inexperienced writer are so far from the truth as to be nearly beside the point.


When you feel global doubt about your talent that is your talent.


People who have no talent don’t have any doubt.”
