In my humble opinion and short experience these are the following:
- To always double-check everything in the writing process and every time loose a little bit of their confidence.
- To easily be depressed by any criticism they get.
- To always think their writing is lacking when they compare it to other pieces of work.
- To not even try to get acknowledgement or to publish because of the fear of rejection.
- To talk ill of their own writing or of themselves.
Can anyone relate to this? I know I can. 😦 Sometimes I don’t even have enough patience for myself…
