Difficulty getting organized
I'm a newspaper writer who dreams about writing a book. My problem is that I have trouble organizing my thoughts. I am all over the place, and scattered. I have three different ideas in my head for books.
Writing a newspaper column is no problem, but building momentum on my book is daunting.
I am also afraid of failure-- that my writing efforts will not amount to much. If I had a publishing deal in hand, I wouldn't have any problem getting motivated.
Any ideas for organizing my thoughts, and getting into stride with my book project?
