I got to read all these books about writing!!?!?!?! I got to do all these research!?!?! I got to read the books in my genre!?!?! Then I got to write the book. I don’t even know what to write yet!?!?! I have so little time to make it. I am so scared that my grammar is bad that I can’t breathe!!!!
BREATHE!!! DUDE!!! BREATHE!!!
FIRST AND FOREMOST, DO NOT PANIC!!! AND STOP TELLING ME WHAT YOU NEED TO DO TO WRITE A BOOK! It’s like telling me you need to study every day to finish first grade and listing down everything you need to do for the next 12 years till you graduate!!! STAWWWP!!!
So what do I do??? Chill all day and my book will just write itself???
NO DARNNIT!!! You got to do your work!!! A LOT OF IT!!! BUT DON’T GO CRAZY TELLING YOURSELF THERE’S SO MUCH TO DO. IN THE END YOU’LL JUST NOT DO ANYTHING!!!
So what do I do now??? What is my first step…
Your first step my young padawan, is to calm down!! That’s the first step. Gather up some confidence. Talk to your best friend or your mom, if you don’t have one. Then… just stay calm.
Step 1. Stay calm. If you can’t do that, we are not going to step 2.
