IWSG: Courage

Time for another post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group.

I think I need some courage.  I have reached the almost end of two separate manuscripts, and I cannot find the courage to complete them.  I don't know how to do it.  

I know how each story ends.  I am prepared for the actual writing of the stories.  I can set aside time to sit down and write.  I just can't make the words appear on the screen or the paper.

I need to find the courage to finish the two projects.  I wonder if it is my fear of the next steps that keeps me from finishing.  I mean, what are the next steps?  How do I even approach publishing?  What if I never get published?


  1. The only thing to fear is fear itself. Break process down into steps, and then conquer each, one at a time.

    1. Great advice. That does make things seem more manageable. Thanks for visiting.

  2. The almost end of two separate manuscripts? That's not less than an achievement. Maybe take a day or two off from writing and then get back to work..?

    1. I've been taking way too many days off writing recently. Maybe it's just time to get back to work.
