Fear: Use It or Lose It
As people and as writers, we find a million things to worry about: failure, rejection, expectation and even, oddly enough, success. Maggie knows a fair amount about fear. Her life experiences have put her face-to-face with death and destruction on far too many occasions (and she’ll even share a few). But those situations also taught her the dangers of letting fear rule your world. After all, the most intriguing story is useless if not shared and the most vibrant characters will wither and fade if they never see the light of day. Find out how to keep fear from holding you back — and how to turn it into an advantage.
