Most days, I am a wimp. There's no benefit to denying that.
Whether it's in writing or real life, I get scared a lot. That doesn't mean I don't take chances, but I spend A LOT of time thinking about whether I should take them or not.
Then there are those other days.
Writing isn't an escape for me. It's part of my reality. But sitting down to write can sometimes scare the crapballs out of me. For example, right now, my WIP feels complicated. Like it's too much for me to handle because of the genre. Two things keep me going: 1) my love of the premise; 2) knowing that when I finish the manuscript, I'll be a much better writer than before.
So yeah. It pays to be awesome.

Now fess up: is something scaring the crapballs out of you? How do you push through that fear?
