What Are You Afraid Of?

Happy Friday, guys! 

I wanted to share this piece that I wrote for Monica Bhide's wonderful blog, about the reasons that writers are daunted and/or afraid of writing fiction. I'm so glad that she asked me to write this because it gave me the opportunity to think through some of my own fears and how I got over them.

Terrific article! My favorite snippet, "If you want it badly enough, you HAVE to risk that you will go down in flames."

You're very honest, helpfully blunt, yet also encouraging.

I still have "nerves" when presenting new work. I can also remember my fears of rejection when performing stand-up comedy for the first time.

Allison, thank you for taking the time to write this site. You elucidate the process and you're supportive!
