Impasta Syndrome

Impasta Syndrome

I think impasta sounds funkier than imposter, and in possibly related reasons, see post title for why SEO is irrelevant for me.


In early April I playing with some basic mapping out of my plans for the rest of the year. I was thinking about when to launch my writing course. The general idea was to finalise and release fairly quickly.


And then impasta/imposter syndrome flew in. I told myself I had to delay it because I haven’t published a book this year. I needed more evidence before I was “allowed” to share the course. Recent “evidence”! I moved the course launch down the list of months.


Then I mentally kicked myself. Just because I haven’t published a book this year doesn’t mean the five books (I count Fuck Should and Llama Should as the same book) I have published doesn’t exist.


Sheesh, brain!!


(I actually wanted to publish my next book this month, May, but yeah, pain has been fucking me over and I need to do a re-read before I send it out to beta readers so it’ll be whenever my body stops hurting me that I get it published. The course will probably be after the book now as the book is more done than the course.)

  1. I love the phrase Impasta Syndrome. And I can so relate. I still can’t bring myself to pitch pieces of writing to websites / magazines in the hope to be paid so yes…. I know exactly what you mean.

  2. Love the title. I hear you on priorities. Good on you for caring better for your physical health first..such a drag but has to be done.
