I’m Scared to Death!

Steven  “If you find yourself asking yourself (and your friends), “Am I really a writer?  Am I really an artist?” chances are you are.  The counterfeit innovator is wildly self-confident.  The real one is scared to death.” — Steven Pressfield (The War of Art:  Break Through the Blocks & Win Your Inner Creative Battles)


I’ve always been scared to death, especially when it comes to writing or being a writer.  How ’bout you?

    Got a fair few stories ranging from shorts to four novel length, but as yet have not got the courage mostly, or know how what to do… lack of confidence I suppose.

    • Oh, Gerry, you totally need to attempt publication. Google publishers that are accepting your type of manuscripts, work up a wonderful query (there are many tutorials online to help you with this), and get those suckers out there in the world. The stuff I read from you on your blog is fantastic and people would benefit from experiencing your creative imagination and colorful characters and scenes. Now get to it, my brother! 😉
