The Terror of the Draft
So I realize I’m just about ready to start writing this story, but I’m . . . well, I’m kind of scared to. Is that weird? I don’t know why. Something about starting this story makes me nervous. Maybe I just want it to be good, and I doubt my skills. Maybe I’m worried I’m forgetting something, and it will come back to bite me later. Maybe I’ve come accustomed to my slacker-writing.* Perhaps I’m just worried, like always, that I won’t be able to pull it off.
Like how I psycho-analyze myself? XD Oh, here’s another one: I didn’t finish The Raimos. What if I don’t finish this one?
Then again, I’ll never finish Weirs if I don’t actually start it. True, this is supposed to be my story for Sanderson’s class in January, but putting it off just to be fresh for that seems kind of stupid to me.
Feel free to post encouragement below. I’m going to see if I can get into the head of my soon-to-be protagonist.
*I’ve done revisions and planning/outlining for the last few months. No word count. No serious work.
