You write - not just a story, but a full book - because something is inside you even in 10, 20, 30 minute cracks in the workday? And then two more follow right behind? And now there's a fourth one knocking at the door?? Christianna, you *are* a writer! And you need to express that - for yourself, at least, if not for us.
Put your chapters in your portfolio. We can help you with editing and critique. Who knows - someone might even be inspired to create a cover for you.
I have a co-worker who has several books on Amazon. Honestly, he's just a step and a half above "okay" (in my little opinion, at least). But his books do make some sales, and he does get checks from the big A. And so I am now inspired to see what I might be able to do.
I personally understand the self-esteem stuff. The only way you will improve is to put your work out there and let people who only know the work to give you honest feedback. It's a very brave thing to do. But I think you can do it. Please do!! :8>)
