So just curious as I'm currently dealing with it. Has anyone ever written a book and then published it, whether self or with an agent, only to realise that you really hate your book. I guess what I'm saying is that once it gets into the publics hand you stop thinking its any good even though it's only gotten good reviews. Mabye I'm being over critical, or mabye I've read it so many times during rewrites and edits that I just hate it. I don't know. People keep asking me how the second book is coming, but i can't seem to finish it. I don't really care about its reviews or any money i made off of it. To me its become an inadequate story and I just can't seem to continue.
