I'm afraid my first novel will never find representation.
I'm afraid I'm taking too long with my latest round of revisions.
I'm afraid my changes will make the book worse, not better.
I'm afraid that everyone else will like the new edits, but I'll still prefer the original.
I'm afraid readers won't "get" what I've tried to do with this book.
I'm afraid the novel won't be taken seriously enough.
I'm afraid that I won't fall in love with the characters in my second novel as much as I did with the characters in my first.
I'm afraid that I'm losing too much time on my first novel and not getting enough new work written.
I'm afraid that everyone will want my second novel to be written just like the first.
I'm afraid that I'm too close to my own work to revise it yet again.
I'm afraid of the blank page.
Fortunately, I'm more afraid of not trying.
