Punch a Stake into Impostor Syndrome (Die Vampire Die!)
The Bloggess posted this on February 5. I just saw it today and immediately realized I had to share it with y’all, because oh Lord I’ve run into this more than once in my life (my fourth grade teacher always used to have this one girl named Patti do the artwork for our classroom. After months of volunteering my services because hey, I was a pretty good artist, too, I finally got to do something — I made paper chains. Out of brown paper. For Patti’s 3-D swing collage. But I’m not bitter).
Did I ever tell you how my mother would sigh over my early SF stories and say wistfully, “I wish you wrote romance novels — then I’d have something I could show my friends.” *eeeevil cackle* Hey, Mom? Be careful what you wish for — you just might get it!
Stab those damned vampires right in the heart (particularly the Air Freshener Vampires. I wave my metaphorical whang at them!).
