One of the nice things about being a writer is that I always get to ask 'What's next?' What is going to happen in the next scene? The next chapter? The next book?
I think most writers are plagued by a surfeit of ideas. The problem is picking one that you want to live with for any length of time, to really dig in and explore. The insecurity comes from worrying that none of your ideas merit such examination.
So what's a writer to do? I think the key is to keep writing. Pick an idea and play around with it. Maybe it will work, maybe it won't, but at least you're trying. You may find that a tiny seed of an idea sprouts into a fully-developed story.
What about you? Do you have the same worries? What's your approach to overcoming the stress of the unknown?
