I will get involved in this. I have a Google Drive folder with a ton of writing, semi formed and half started pieces that have occupied my head for the past however many years. The only thing that has held me back and stopped me putting them out in the world is… well I was going to lie and say that it was a lack of confidence brought on by zero peer group but it’s actually crippling self doubt.

When I was 14, and they asked where I saw myself age 30 I said I’d be drawing covers for my own novels that nobody would ever read, and making up songs that nobody would ever listen to. I was sort of right.

Like what you read? Give Jay a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
