Starting is often my biggest hurdle to overcome.

I want to write.

I need to write.

But writing is scary.

Once I sit down and actually begin writing, the words flow out, paragraph after paragraph, page after page. It might not all be very good, but at least I’m writing. Once it’s there on the page I have something to work with. And that isn’t quite so scary. In fact, that is a lot of fun.

What hurdles cause you to procrastinate and how do you overcome them? 

  1. I make myself at least write a very very crummy first draft. Then I walk away, come back and give it a makeover later. Sometimes it helps. As you said, the first page is always the hardest to write!
