Good Fridays: Day Off and Writing
That said, I'm more than ready for a day off. My day off tasks include catching up with all the social media I missed or neglected during the workweek, doing any chores or shopping, making time for pc games I don't usually get to play, and (of course) writing. That seems like the hardest to get done.
I don't know about you, but I let myself get daunted by my own grand ideas. I have envisioned a scene so well sometimes that I worry I won't do it justice when I try to put it to words. This makes me afraid to even start writing. Fear of failure, I guess.
I've heard that the best remedy for fear of failure is to just do it. Whatever it is you're so afraid to do. Being a card-carrying procrastinator, I need to hammer that point home harder than most people. (I will do it today, or die trying!)
What do you struggle with before writing? And how do you finally win?
