What a difference a critique makes!!

My very lovely CP has given me back my enthusiasm for my book. Not that I've been struggling, struggling, but I started this WIP in the New Year and it's been stop and start all the way ever since. It's left me with 'those' feelings already: Is it boring? Am I wasting my time? Do I have the right voice for M&B Romance... ? You know the ones, they then turn into major collywobbles. I've had them before, but not quite as soon as this - I'm only on Chapter Two.

I didn't think it bode well, and then the other old questions reared their heads: Am I sure I'm even a writer? Am I just toying with the idea...?

But no, thanks to my wonderfully talented CP, my doubts have disappeared. She loves my writing, and she thinks it's right for M&B. Phewwwww!!! I live to write another day :-D.
