10 Reasons I Can’t Bring Myself to Hit “Publish”

Inside the mind of a neurotic writer

1. The title is terrible.

2. It’s not timely anymore. I took too long.

I am a delicate flower with an ego made of glass.

3. People will say terrible things in the comments.

4. I don’t know enough about this.

5. I will regret this post.

If I publish this, I will starve penniless and alone.

6. This article could be better.

7. People will laugh at me.

8. No one will read this anyway.

No one wants substance. DANCE CLOWN, DANCE!

9. It doesn’t flow. Why won’t it flow? FLOW damn it!
