Ask yourself every once in a while:
Am I in over my head?
Am I posing questions in my work to which there can never be satisfying, final answers?
Am I trying to tackle a project here that is well beyond my capacity as a writer?
Am I just a little afraid of the direction that all of this is going?
If the answer to each of these questions is yes, then you are heading in the right direction.
These questions and quote from the The Mindful Writer by Dinty Moore speak directly to where I’m at on Day 8 of Memoir Month.
