The "I'm a Total Hack" Days


I'm usually a person who can focus on the bright side of things, but I'm having one of those days where I'm racked with doubt and insecurity.  Do I know what I'm doing?  Will I actually be able to find success in this one day?  Does my writing/story/plot/hairstyle suck?  Even if I do have a great story will it be special enough to be published?  Am I just deluding myself?  I'm sure many of you are familiar with those days.  They seem to be an occupational hazard for writers.


I know this feeling will pass.  It always does.  But I'd like that to be sooner rather than later.  So I need some advice...

What do you do when you're having one of those "I'm a total hack" days?  What gets you back on the positivity train?
