Feeling like an imposter
I feel a little like an impostor when I do things like this. Even after all I've learned about writing and all my experience in the field/industry, there is part of me that still says "Who am I to talk about this with any kind of authority?"
I know quite a bit about writing. In addition to my degree in English, I've tutored English (college-level), I've taught high school English, and I've been working full time as a writer since June 2008. Theoretically, I should be able to talk about writing and grammar and punctuation and help others strengthen their own writing.
So why do I still feel like I should be in Rutledge basement listening to lectures about Keats?
