We’ve all been there. That short story just won’t gel, or your blog posts are met with crickets, or you’ve been over that blasted manuscript four times and you’re sure no one will ever want to read it.

I’m wondering what you do when the who-do-you-think-you-are critic rears his head and you just. want. to. stop. And some of us will stop, but we never stop forever; we always circle back, whether it takes weeks or years.
Let’s help each other out and answer: How do you keep from giving in to that inner voice telling you you’re just not getting it? Do you go for a walk? Switch gears and paint something? Journal?
Drop a line in the comments, because the chances are good that someone reading this is ready to throw in the proverbial towel, and could really use some advice.
