I get three or four paragraphs into page one of a work in progress, and suddenly panic. It is like realizing that you swam too far into the grown-up side of the pool and can no longer feel the bottom beneath your frantically kicking feet.

So, backtracking, sloshing water everywhere in an attempt to get back to the shallows, I hit ‘Delete’ and sit back. I stare at the blank page with relief and a little embarrassment, hoping none of the other bigger kids saw that.
