    Fear/Self-Doubt are such obstacles…. Especially since they are often embedded in perfectly reasonable sounding logic.
    Good luck on the chapters!!ReplyCancel

    I think all writers go through that fear and self-doubt. Getting past it isn’t easy. Good luck.ReplyCancel

    You go girl! You’re really brave! It’s normal to feel fear after such a commitment, but what makes you brave is to go forth even though you’re scared. I wish you the best of luck! Can’t wait to hear about the whole experience once the critique is done!ReplyCancel

    Sorry I’m so late for the IWSG! Please don’t think you are EVER alone in this one! I too, have let fear put a kibosh on risk. But then I got to thinking… If I don’t do it(whatever “it” is), I have ZERO chance of success. If I do it, even if it’s wrong, I have a 50-50 chance. In my view, frightening as it is to risk in putting myself out there, 50-50 is a whole lot better than zero. Besides, it’s like a friend of mine once told me, “When I walk on the beach I used to cover up with a towel or long shirt while wearing my swimsuit. Then I realized, in fifteen minutes no one will remember, much less think about, my fat-jiggling butt!” So, what have I got to lose?ReplyCancel
