I don’t think you ever stop doubting your abilities as a writer, no matter how much proof or experience you have to convince you otherwise. But I also think that any writer who achieves anything has learnt to accept these doubts as part of the process, and move past them.
Often it’s as simple as saying, “yes, I have doubts as to my abilities/this story/the popular taste, but I’m going to do it anyway.”
But it’s also good to get into the habit of turning these negative, doubting questions into positive – or at least proactive – ones. If you keep asking the same (weak) questions, you’ll keep giving yourself the same (weak) answers.
