We hear from two writers today who suffer from some pretty common obstacles when it comes to what holds them back from their writing. The first talks about her submission anxiety, a fear of both failure and success. The second wonders how she can write character-driven prose instead of plot-driven prose that pushes her characters into unlikely scenarios. We’ve got writers and performers Liesl Swogger and Kathleen Flynn to help us out.
