Day 16

Word count: 2,220

I wrote a scene and ten pages just poured out of me.  A long scene.  Having said that, I am extremely worried.  What if I crash and burn?  I have no idea what I'm doing.  This is a huge undertaking.  What if I finish it and it's awful?  I'm such a novice.  The characters come to life for me, but all my flaws as a writer haunt me as I try to pull this all together.

  1. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but so what if you crash and burn. When you finish this, you will have finished something amazing. You say yourself that you're a novice, but that's what's wonderful about this. It leaves a lot of room for error, for correction and for growth. There always has to be a first novel. Whether it succeeds or fails or you quietly tuck it into a drawer, you have taken that first great leap and then cease to be the novice.
    And look what you've accomplished so far. Posting 17 days in a row. WRITING 17 days in a row.
    You rock, FW!
