This reminds me of something I read a while ago, “If your dream doesn’t scare you, it’s not big enough”. I am no self proclaimed wise witch and I do not pretend to know it all, but I do know that negativity and your own criticism will prevent you from busting out of the box. How the hell can you be your own critic? If we could all do that then critics would cease to exist and we need them! Of course, we need to be realistic, the writing needs to be edited (by a professional) and it’s tough, but that’s all part of the process. Stop blaming other people or the cut throat industry or time or whatever it is that FEAR comes up with. Relax. Stop overthinking it all. It is pretty simple.
Magic is a “do” word. No magic will ever happen if we do not start with actions. So write, just write.
