With every project I start there is the intimidation factor. Usually I ask myself whether or not I'll get it done in time. But this time it's a different intimidation. I'm in the works of starting a new book. I've written one book but that was rushed and I had to be historically accurate. I'm in love with fantasy books and this book is going to be all about fantasy. But when I open that journal I stare at this blank paper just waiting to be filled with anything I can conjure up. The blank pages intimidate me because all my ideas are forgotten and I start having trouble articulating everything. This is a fear of mine every time I sit down and write. Where do I start?! I'm that type of person who can't keep quiet the 343450 ideas that float throughout my head. I guess I get too excited to start that I jump from one scene to another without describing it properly. Writing a new book is intimidating when it should be enjoyable. Gah I'm stuck!
