Imposter Syndrome, the feeling that you don’t deserve any of the success in your life, is a legitimate psychological phenomenon that can hit indie authors the hardest. You might feel as though you’re a fraud, which can be very draining on the psyche and very counterproductive. If these thoughts and feelings sound familiar then the first step to overcoming this issue is to recognize it for what it is. Learn to distinguish between the positive, editorial part of your brain and the part of your brain that’s telling you your work isn’t good enough to publish. You also need to do everything you can to make sure your work is excellent. If you can remove any elements of doubt from your own mind then you’ll be able to move past the Imposter Syndrome. Remember that you’re never going to be right 100 percent of the time and no one else will either. Let that reminder lift some of the pressure and stress. Be brave and fight through the issue so that you can get your work done!
