You want to write a novel, but you feel overwhelmed.
But you can silence that feeling and start writing your novel TODAY.
Your critical mind is fear-based. It exists to protect you. It keeps you from putting your hand on a hot stove or from crossing the street without checking for oncoming traffic.
In the case of putting yourself "out there" in the form of short stories or novels, it strives to protect you from yourself.
It strives to protect you from rejection by editors and publishers, or from the possible embarrassment you might feel from a bad review.
Yet this fear is baseless. If you write fiction, your work will occasionally get a bad review. It will also get many good ones. It's all a matter of the reader's personal taste.
If your work is rejected by an editor, what happens? Nothing. You send that piece back out to another editor and you write the next story. Because you're a writer. It's what you do.
Quiet the Critical Voice (and Write Fiction) will show you in detail how to recognize the critical voice and how to silence it so you can get on with your life's work.
The book contains a section on Heinlein's Rules and a revolutionary, freeing technique called Writing Into the Dark.
As a bonus, writing will become the most fun you've ever had.
