Alex J. Cavanaugh's innovative blog hop, where writers can post their fears or offer encouragement to other writers. We post the first Wednesday of every month.
As I just finished my NaNoWriMo sci-fi novel, I have two worries looming over me.
1.That as I am taking a couple weeks break from the book to get some distance from it, that I will fall into the pit of procrastination and never come back to it. I keep telling myself that I love the story and characters too much to let it sit there forever. But still, I worry... Procrastination is so easy.
2. Once I do come back to it and start the re-write (which I will. I WILL, I tell you!), I will not be able to do the characters or the story justice. They are so perfectly formulated in my brain... but how to transfer that perfection onto the page? The tales spinning in my head always come out differently when I put the words down. Not worse, just different. I have to learn to live with that.
