Insecure Writer's Support Group
I don't know if this is an insecurity so much as something that could help me bring down a door, only to wonder if I really should go down that corridor...
But then I don't even know if it's that either, I'm too apprehensive to think of a better metaphor today.
Okay, so I have steadily kept up my progress as touted in a IWSG post a couple of months ago, and after reading a post about small goals (100 words a day) that somehow resonated with me, I unconsciously made the decision to write a little for my WIP a day.
I was pretty surprised to say the least about what has come from this. While I only expected musings and random dialogue, I discovered an... enhanced beginning, which worried me. Was I going to change the beginning and cause implications for the rest of the plot?
But upon a Loss vs Gain analysis I realised not everything has to change; cultivating these scenes could actually be the catalyst I didn't realise I was looking for.
So not really a total insecurity, more of an 'assessing the jump and waiting for bystanders to agree that it seems legit' post today.
