“What if nobody likes it?” Author Brian Keene tackles a writer’s self-doubt

Author Brian Keene

Brian Keene, American horror author, tackles the thorny issue of “Writer’s Block” on his blog with the post “What if nobody likes it?” Although he asserts that there’s no such thing as Writer’s Block, he does acknowledge that sometimes, life still gets in the way.

‘I’d rather play video games tonight’ is not a valid excuse. But there are times when the things going on in your life encroach upon your writing. Sickness. Death. Depression. Doubt. These things, and others like them, can wreak havoc on your ability to write.

Visit his blog to read more on how to overcome the self-doubt that every writer, no matter their level of experience, feels at some point.


Brian Keene is an American author of horror, crime fiction, and comic books, and two-time winner of the Bram Stoker Award.
