For a while now I have had the desire to write my own book. I have a fairly good idea of what the book would contain (non-fiction), and research isn't really something I need to do too much of, as it's a subject close to my heart. Having said that I still can not get around to starting it. Everything is in my head, and not on paper as it should. I'm unsure if I feel nervous or scared about it, or a mix of the two. Never been someone that take failure well, and everything I commit to I put in at least 100% to ensure I succeed. Maybe that's the part that I'm afraid of, I am completely out of my comfort zone, and failure would have a detrimental effect on my emotional well-being. Well it looks like I may have answered my own questions. It was nice talking. Any tips to getting started? Or a way of 'breaking me in gently'?
