So for a while now, I've been trying work on a prose novel. Slowly becoming disillusioned with the comic books industry, I figure it's a good time to continue the journey that I began in 08'. But I can't because honestly...I'm scared. Not of one thing in particular, but a number. Novel's seem extremely daunting, the sheer size and scope are frightening to me. I really don't even understand how people write novels? What drives you? What keeps you driven? What pushes all the fear and anxiety out of your heads? And do you have some of, whatever it is, I can borrow? Also what if my novel sucks? What if it's just not a good story? I'm writing this as a sort of confession and maybe a little therapy. I've been told to outline or to take it one chapter at a time. But ever time I sit down to write I feel like I'm facing a wall of water that is about to annihilate me. Anyone have any recommendations about how to get over that?
