Publisher's Blues.

Larry, by the way, is telling me that I should start to publish my essays. He said I should hit the open-mike circuit, read to anyone and everyone who will listen to me and prove myself as a brilliant writer.

Though it feels good to think that I'd be capable of such a thing, I don't think I'm "there" yet. I can do readings, certainly, but I can't write long-form pieces at this point, and all my previous attempts at fiction or looks-like-nonfiction have not proven satisfactory to me.

I don't know what direction I'm going in, but I think I'm moving forward. And I'm occasionally, to no one's surprise, plagued by unnecessary doubt.
