Terror of Writing:
A Secret of Successful Authors

If you want to be a writer, but are too afraid, here is my suggestion:

No matter how terrified you are about writing, write anyway. Don’t respond to me with, “You don’t understand how scared I am, if you think I can write despite it.” Terror isn’t a block to writing (except, of course, now and then). If nothing else, write about your terror. Or write poorly if your terror gets in the way of better writing. Writers can be differentiated from non-writers by one simple fact: Writers write. Some of them talk about writing, some of them “process” their feelings about writing, and some do neither of these. But all writers write. They write despite their terror and, maybe, because of it.
