As a sidenote: I know most people say that you shouldn't show your first draft to anyone until it's completely finished, but I've never waited. I always write up a few pages then send them to Kote. Maybe, I'll write a post about that another time.
ANYWAYS! I'm more excited/inspired to work on this project and have been scribbling away at it in my writer's journal over the past week. However, I have this feeling that the excitement will slowly fade away and I'll be stuck in another rut like with my last unfinished story. I know that I've said before to keep at a draft until it's done, but I decided that I wouldn't follow my advice this time. When writing isn't joyful anymore then something needs to change, so I changed it. So what am I insecure about this month? Well, the general things that come along with writing a new story (is it worth it, is it a good idea etc. etc.) and the decision to start something new with something else unfinished.
What eases me:
-I've decided to keep old characters and rework them into the new plot idea
-I'm writing more of what I know
So right now, I'm doing pretty good. I'm on a new story high! How about everyone else? What are your current insecurities or "highs"?
