Nearly everyone suffers from self-doubt. Ironically, those who achieve remarkable early success, as Sergei Rachmaninoff did at the age of 19 with his Preludes may suffer the most. What is the point of continuing to work if you will never create something as successful as that early attempt? Especially if that early attempt was something of a fluke—how can you continue to create without trying to create?  See my review of Preludes here to get a sense of how playwright Dave Malloy tackles these questions in Preludes.
