Lately, there's been this suspicion that my writing is not where it should be.
I read my words and wonder: Am I overwriting? Do I really need to say what the hero smells like? Do I need to describe the feelings that are overwhelming the heroine? Is it necessary to use metaphors?
No one has said I overwrite. So why is my writer's conscious bugging me about it?
I'm chalking it up to paranoia.
Do you ever obsess over something in your writing, despite the lack of a solid foundation (crits) for your worry?
