Fear Factor, Writing Edition

Copyblogger's Brian Clark offers some insights today on what might be called the stop psychology of writing -- specifically, how fear often gets in the way.

Determining that it's not fear, but F.E.A.R. --
False Evidence Appearing Real -- that holds us back, he suggests breaking down the situation objectively.  If you failed before, you probably learned from it, and if you learned from it, chances are you won't make the same mistake again. So really, the only people who have anything to fear are those who haven't tried. Moral of the story? Try, try, and try again.
