It's the same every time I get the itch to write. I'll lie in bed at night, mulling over my ideas, composing great (at least in my head) sentences and opening paragraphs. And then the next day I'll sit down and tap these out into a word document - no pressure, they're just ideas and sentences I like. But then something clicks and some part of me decides I've started a novel... or maybe just a short story, and in turn this brings a pressure to write and continue what I started. After this transformation has taken place, I'll sit down at the computer in earnest... and proceed to do ANYTHING except open up the document and start writing; browse this forum, surf the net, make a cup of coffee, pick up a book and pretend I'm reading it for inspiration. It's weird, but some part of me gets scared, scared that the words will dry up or that my enthusiasm will fade. I thrive on WANTING to write, more than the actual process itself, and I have a silly fear that if I start writing I will kill that desire. Does anyone relate to this in ANY way shape or form? And if so how do you get around it?
