Naaaaaaaaah, don’t go there.
Hugs, not-mediocre one.
Thanks, friend. I was already there but it was momentary.
The law of averages says you’re still top-notch. I’m thinking even better than that, because you’re probably your own worst critic. Hang in there (Oh boy, do I get what you’re saying!)
I’m glad it’s not just me. 🙂
Cut that out! Those of us hanging tenaciously below you urge you to keep climbing!
Hee hee! I’m trying, I’m trying! Thanks for making me laugh.
Yesterday’s brilliance is still right there, strong and firm. Some writing devil of mediocrity is tickling you under the armpits and shaking your confidence. Don’t lose your grip and let them win. Hang on, Kristy!
Thanks! Ah, it’s the writing devils of mediocrity I need to watch out for. I knew it wasn’t my fault!
You aren’t mediocre even on your bad days. But I know that feeling and it will pass, brilliant friend of mine.
I don’t know why I saw this in your title but it makes me laugh a little:
Mediocrity = moi + edit+ cry
It’s like the cycle we all seem to go through: edit, cry, edit, cry, then BINGO! You break through to the brilliant side again!
Hee. Chin up, you! 😀

Thanks for the laugh — and the inspiration! I love how LJ friends pull together!
You make me laugh. I don’t know if I see brilliance at the end of the rainbow or not. But I’ll keep writing.
Nah. I don’t believe it for a minute. You, my dear, are brilliant EVERY day.
Thank you. Somewhere in the back corner of my mind, maybe, if I could just access it. I think it’s like an out of body experience. 🙂
It’s all a trick by evil leprechauns. You are very brilliant.
Ah-hah! I knew those leprechauns were up to something.
Ah yes, from your post I can indeed tell you are a writer! And a brilliant, witty one as well!
Thanks for the friend.
Hang on, Kristy. Guess what’s waiting for you on the next ledge.
I hope it’s chocolate. Or maybe I’ll dare to dream for something even better. 🙂
Thanks! I’ll try to believe you. 🙂 But really, your userpic makes me want to go to the beach.
Hang in there, Kristy
Just keep hanging in there. You can do it.
Re: Hang in there, Kristy
Thanks, Kerry. I need to get interview questions to you. I haven’t forgotten!
Re: Hang in there, Kristy
Hope you’re feeling better. It would be great to do the interview. Thanks, Kristy. I go back to NC from July 27th-August 5th.
Thank you for making me laugh. Even though that was probably not your intention.
Well what else can we do but laugh when we feel like completely incompetent hacks…but then again I can’t see why you’d ever feel that way!
Of course I feel that way from time to time. Everyone does. Silly Kristy. And hey — at least Lee bought a poem from you (not me — le sigh).
I theoretically know that everyone feels that way from time to time, even the wonderful Kelly Fineman. But it’s funny isn’t it, how one day we really do think we’re brilliant and the next, not so much?
