“Courage means to keep making forward progress while you still feel afraid.”

— Joyce Meyer

It’s slow going, this writing work. I finished plotting the story A YEAR AGO. Every day, or every other day, I sit down at my laptop and I write and add to it. Each time I do this I think that I’ve “just” finished plotting the story and I’m proud of how far I’d come. But it has been a year.

There’s the fear I’ll never finish.

There’s the fear that it will be absolute garbage even if I finish.

There’s the fear that I’ll have put too much of myself into the story.

But I have to keep going.
