I'm a disciplined, dedicated person. I know what I have to do, and I know what I have to do to get it done.
I subscribe more to the 'sit down and figure it out then write' theory than I do to a muse. I subscribe to the theory that writer's block is really just fear. Fear of failure. Fear of success. I have them both in spades and sometimes they just paralyze me.
And as I'm trying to be more disciplined in my writing, do more writing on a more regular basis, I've ping-ponged between my fears.
I think I can write. Short stories and novels. I have two novels that are WIPs and one completed novel that could be rewritten, if I felt up to the heavy lifting, into something I think would be marketable. I have tons of bits and pieces that could be fitted into a coherent something.
Whatever comes though, I need to focus.
How about you? Discipline or muse? Biggest fear in writing? How do you focus?
