Wish I could help you believe in yourself, because you DO have the talent of a convincing writer, you are very convincing person, and you have Friends and Readers that will always follow you and believe in you! It's never easy to believe in ourselves! You will make it, my friend ... and Believe it!!
Thank you the encouragement, Pete!
I have similar periods of self-doubt, and wonder if what I put out there is really making any kind of impact. Thanks for being so brutally honest. Rest assured that what you do really does matter, and there are people who are paying attention. The internet is more interesting because of your contributions.
Thanks, Barry.It's the silence that gets to me.
