On Sunday I went to a BBQ hosted by my best friend Jaz who recently started a very successful photography business and was voted the UK's Funkiest Photographer.
But what made this BBQ special is that it was largely attended by her peers in the photography industry - and they fret about their work just as much as we writers do!
Just listening to their conversations was like listening to writers. They compared themselves to each other, as well as their heroes. They worried that people might realise they lacked confidence. They realised that they lacked a certain skill and wanted some help. They wanted to critique each other's work in a safe, supportive atmosphere.
Later that night I played Singstar: High School Musical with my goddaughter and we sang a song called We're All In This Together. It dawned on me that we are. All creative people fret. (At least they should, in my opinion. If you're not being critical of your own work then I think there's something wrong.)
I left feeling as energised and inspired as I do after a Writebulb meeting.
So, what do you fret about?
