I started writing fiction this April, 2016. It started with a story constantly running through my mind that eventually pushed me to the computer. It was new and it was fun. As the story got longer, the word ‘publishing’ started to pop up more often.
Initially I was thinking, yep, self publish on amazon and free it into the world of readers. However I was naive to the world of publishing. And now the thought of publishing makes my stomach churn. Not that I don’t want to do it, but that the anxiety associated with the thought of putting my first novel out there is constantly at the back of my mind. Much so, that it seems to be taking the joy out of just writing for me.
So for now I have tried setting my mind at ease by trying to just focus on finishing it, then focus on the editing, and then go from there. Just need to push through I guess..
