So, I've been fighting this left-brain/right-brain battle for a few months, and I've finally gotten back the attitude that writing is more important than method of writing.
Okay, so I'm writing again, and maybe a little blogging as well.
I just found a little item on confidence by Murderati author Toni McGee Causey.
I have to agree that confidence accounts for a lot in writing. Which is one of the reason that the "show not tell" maxim is poisonous to young authors. Honestly, do you think Neil Gaiman has a problem with telling? If he wants to tell, he tells. And he does it with confidence, style, and masterful language.
Hat tip, Janet Reid.
