I don’t know how
Use Google. Here’s how to learn almost anything.
It’s already been done
There’s nothing new under the sun. We’re all stealing each other’s ideas.
They’ll Laugh at me
No they won’t. Or better yet-beat them to it.
I don’t know how to start
I’m Not an Expert
They’ll think I’m a fraud
We’re all a fraud. To quote John McPhee:
“Writers come in two principle categories-those who are overtly insecure and those who are covertly insecure…”.

Great. That just means you’re closer. Bombing is essential to the process.
Whats my Excuse?
Normally it’s that I’m afraid it’s already been said. Why say it again if someone else has already said it? Reading helps with that. I see how much other books borrow from themes of other books. All work is derivative. Nothing is original.
