We all have fears. Some are logical:
And some are slightly less logical:But there is one fear that every writer faces: the fear of their old, crappy drafts.
Today I’m pulling out the very first draft of my very first book, and let me warn you, those first couple of paragraphs are painful! It was a paranormal (as was the thing to write four years ago) about a boy who could see the future, but got really sick when he tried to do it.
Speaking of sick, don’t mind the sniffles in this vlog I’m battling one of those deadline-and-debut colds, so my voice is more terrifying than usual!
Come back and visit us next week on Fearless Fridays when the lovely Michelle Falkoff will try to face one of her greatest fears!
