Writing Can be Painful!

I’m about to begin the sequel to a short story I’d written last summer. I’m planning to expand it into a full-blown book, but I’m having a hard time starting! I have the opening chapters planned out. Even the first line is written in my head. But the thought of actually beginning, of putting the words down on the screen, daunts me. When I write, the story engulfs me to the exclusion of everything else, pushing until the final word is wrung out of me. It’s emotionally draining and eats all my time…

And there’s nothing else more fulfilling. Here goes!
