Writer Fear: ‘Will I Be Able To Write Another Book?’ #SundayBlogShare #Writers



This deadly literary fear starts towards the end of writing your first proper book. I say ‘proper’ because nothing I have done up until now feels like what I am working on currently.

I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
