I'm pretty sure I should be writing my book right now.
I don't know what's stopping me. Is it the fear of failure? Is the story not ready to be finished?
It's hard for me to get in that place, that writing place. I wonder why I've chosen such an odd perspective. It feels like I'm struggling with it; my MC reads minds, so I have to be aware of every character's emotions, thoughts, dreams, hates...all at the same time. It feels overwhelming. But isn't that what writing's about? I guess I feel like some of the characters should be a mystery, even to me.
I keep thinking all these things about why I shouldn't write, but then I remember something Charlotte Bronte said.
"I'm just going to write because I cannot help it."
Novel, here I come.
