Fess Up Friday: Bravery In Writing

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?


  1. Not at the moment, but I'm pretty sure I'll be overwhelmed when I get the notes from my CPs.

  2. I write about the things that scare me. :) It helps me learn to deal with them.

  3. That cat is awesome!

    I get freaked out about stuff most of the time, but I think that I need a bit of fear to get me through the hard stuff. Or chocolate. :)
