The fear of stopping

Writing is a skill and like I have said in my previous posts either you have it or you don’t. I know from personal experience that it’s hard to stop. There have been a few times where I have feared that if I stopped I wouldn’t be able to get going again. The thing you need to remember is as long as you have the skill and the passion you will always be able to get going again. The ideas won’t stop, the storylines and plots won’t go away if you step back for a little bit. I understand that sometimes you feel like you will never get going again. Trust me I have had that feeling so many times, including now. I know that I have the skills though you have to be confident in your art. If you don’t think you can do it you most likely won’t even try. Beliving you can do it is half the battle when it comes to writing. The other part is pure determination, you need to be able to not let anyone stop you. So if you have the will power to stop you should also have the power to start. What people think of your work matters but it matters if you are happy.
