Any creative writers out there?
In the professional sense, I'm mostly a nonfiction writer. That said, my passion is with fiction, but when the rubber meets the road, I freeze up. Although I have three fully-developed story lines, when I sit down to write, my anxiety gets the best of me and I buckle under my personal expectations and fears of failure.
While it's easy to tell myself not to worry about first drafts, that nagging sense of being not good enough doesn't respond to logic. Even getting positive feedback doesn't help much.
For the creative writers out there: do you have similar problems? How do you deal with worried about inadequacy, especially unfounded ones? Does routine help? Something else? I'd love to hear your experiences.#fopp writing
