Re: If you're not scared, you're not doing it right?
I've been dreaming up worlds and characters at least since my teens.
Didn't really sit down and make a serious effort to put them down on paper/in pixels till my late thirties (Does a play that poked fun at Dungeons and Dragons, written in my early twenties and probably lost in the intervening decades count? Do pages and pages of worldbuilding for a world that never ever got used count? Do super hero character sketches that I might just be able to recycle into current WIP count?).
Hoping I've made some progress.
Scared? Scared of looking back over my life forty-odd years from now, and realising I could have written something so much better than sparkly vampires, and I never did!
