Is it bad if...?

Is it bad if you're writing a book and you have to take out 15 pages because they suck? Did I mention they were consecutive pages?

Is it bad if you're writing a book and you have absolutely no idea how it's going to end, because it has suddenly taken on its own personality and is constantly changing its mind?

Is it bad if you're writing 12 books at the same time because you can't get past the first sentence on 11 of them?

Is it bad if you're writing a book and all you want to do is write? Even over watching your favorite TV show or reading your favorite books?

I am seriously having some major writer's block. The worst part is I keep coming up with ideas for other stories that I want to write, and I know how I want them to play out, but those first few crucial chapters are so elusive! I can't seem to write more than 1 or 2 sentences of pure garbage before I scrap the whole thing and move on to a different project! UGH this is so frustrating.

Okay, sorry, I just needed to vent for a minute. I'm okay. Now, back to writing something!

I always figured i'd write a book. I have lots of ideas. I just am scared. So I'm really proud of you even if you have set backs!!
