The answer: One bite at a time.
That is the way that I feel about most things that seem huge and impossible to do. I just chip away at it until it's more my size.
It's exactly how I will get to finishing Doorways.
How do I slay the Beast? One word at a time.
I will not stay frozen in fear, wondering why I thought up the story in the first place. (Not for longer than a day, in any case.)
I will not disguise that fear by finding some other things to do instead...
And this draft will be finished at the end of April.
I will not be sitting with the rewrite for another year.
I must say that everything feels better now that I have done something to allay the uncertainty. Now, it's time for me to go face the beast for a bit.
In the mean time... Anyone else feel overwhelmed by their WiP's? What do you do to deal with it?
