Momentum is an odd thing. For five years I wrote story after story, novel after novel without results. Sure I won a few awards, published a few short stories, but I never felt like I achieved what I wanted to in terms of my writing. Then I get the publishing contract I've always wanted, with a major publisher. Then other offers start rolling in. People start writing nice reviews. Things are going so well, and picking up speed. So why do I feel like I'm waiting for the other shoe to smash me in the head, and say, "Snap out of it!"
Do famous writers feel this way? Does JK wonder when her words will dry up? Does Stephen King? Or Harlan Coben worry at night? What about Harper Lee? Did she worry that she would only publish one book, and then it came true?
