Writing Through Fear

Okay, so I’m scared to write. I’m certain that whatever I write will be worthless. But it needs to be done and I can’t edit a blank page. Editing is my salvation. I can add or change things for the better once I have written those first words. And I like cutting words, scenes, and chapters. I get rid of the chaff for a better over-all book.What is left when you remove chaff? Bare seeds I think… Wheat, rye, whatever. Seeds that can be eaten, thrown, or grown. For the reader, books and their ideas can be used in all three ways. But please apologize to the book later if you throw it…
