Fear of Bad Writing, Is a Scattered Draft Finished, Changing a Process You Love

How to Write Fiction:

Who doesn't worry at some point that they're going to bomb with their fiction? Many writers put off publishing, revising or even creating for fear of a lack of skill.  

If you're a non-linear writer with scattered scenes, how do you know if you technically have a first draft?  

Should I change a process I love if I feel it's not getting results I think I am supposed to be getting?

In this episode Author and Fiction Teacher Holly Lisle and I (host, Rebecca Galardo) discuss several questions emailed to us by two writers who feel their issues were not common enough to warrant a post in the podcast forums - but these are very, very common issues!  Let's get to working on some solutions together.

Join us in this week’s episode and if you have a question for us join us in the forums at and get to typing!
