Is anyone else out there doing this?
I just came across it and I am really thinking about it. I didn't want to tell anyone about me deciding to write a book because I didn't want it to make me scared to write it. The truth is though, I'm scared to write it anyway.
I was going to do NaNoWriMo in November when I thought that was the only one. It was letting me procrastinate a little longer on it. Now that I see this one in April, I feel it is a sign for me to start it up now.
If I decide to do this, I am going to have to spend the next few days working on my outline and getting it going really well.
I am also in the dilemma of what book I want to write. I have one that means a whole lot to me, but I'm scared that it will scar me if no one likes it since it is more personal. The other book seems wonderful too, but it wasn't my first idea nor that personal. It just has a lot of my interests put into it with some good promise of where it could go. I don't know if I should go with the easier one first to get my first book over with or if I should go ahead and go for the gold with the personal one.
What do you all think? Have you done this before? Any advice would be very much appreciated!! I've never written anything other than a school paper in my life and I'm scared!!
