Good Ol’ Writers Block

Writers block or nerves?

I’m not quite sure which yet.

I’m having trouble writing the last few chapters of my first novel, Return to Me.

I have had a very hard time setting aside some time to work on it. I have a good friend doing some editing for me, and she’s almost caught up. 🙂 That means I need to get my butt in gear, or soon, she won’t have anything left to read. And she’ll be left hanging because I have no idea how I am going to end the darn thing.

Honestly, I think it’s because I’m a bit scared. I’ve been working on this for years. And I mean, YEARS. I started it in 2005, I think. I’ve lost count. Having a job, a family, etc. doesn’t really leave much ME time. I love to write. I love my characters, the land, the plot… heck, I even named my first son’s middle name after my main male lead. (Obsessed much? Yeah, I love the guy.)

I’m scared to see it end. I’m worried that what I have in my head won’t translate to paper and that it will be crap. I know what is supposed to happen – I just can’t get it down. When I do have some time to write, my fingers won’t work.

I know I need to just go for it. I’m not going to be able to get it published unfinished, and besides, I told myself that I couldn’t start number 2 until the first (prodigy) was done.

Thoughts?

Yeah, Write…

Did you know that I’m writing a novel?

Yup!  I am!  Thanks to my awesome crit partner – yes, you need a name S, I’m working my way through it.  I’ll post my trials and tribulations here as well as I work my way to getting it published.  I already have an idea for novel numero dos, so lets hope the journey continues!
