Writers fears

I'm trying to get on with my coursework today as the workmen don't seem to work on the weekends ( which is a relief.), but I'm almost crippled with feelings that what i am writing is utter rubbish :(

I know we all have good days and bad days, and I know I am struggling with the inflexibleness of this course, but part of me hopes this is how all writers feel sometimes...

I'm just starting to wonder if I have any understanding of the structure of our language at all.

haaaa, yeah. All the narcissistic writers I know are purple and terrible anyway. Some days language just seems impenetrable to me. And there's nothing worse than an idea that's too big for your hands to hold. *sigh*

I tend to assume it's impossible to have any real grasp on how good one's writing is, because we only have one end of the thread. Writing is about what we can communicate to others - it's not something we can measure all by ourselves. It takes more than one of us to make it come alive.
