Fears reasons and excuses are easy to overcome. People have said that the best time to plant a tree was twenty years ago and the best time for you to plant a tree is now. Get whatever help you need to make the change from I will write soon, to the time to write is now and do it. You can defeat your fear. You can change the reasons. You can disqualify the excuses. Write the first word of the first sentence of wherever you want to begin writing and all of that will disappear. You can start the story in any way you want, even in the middle and write the beginning later. My book titled Mutual Transitions: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/501420 has a word count of 124,470
Fears reasons and excuses can be helpful by bringing inspiration to your work. I wrote the end of Mutual Transitions before the beginning: Jenkins walked away from the group, moving toward the house and said in a whispered tone, “Heaven help us all.”
The beginning is: The old man lay on the ground, blood oozing from the gash over his left eye.
His assailant stood poised to strike again, when Craig stopped at the corner of the alley.
“Hey! What’s going on here?”
He entered the alley, then stopped when a third man stepped out of the shadows.
Fears reasons and excuses overcome will allow you freedom to act in any manner you desire. Relaxed and happy will be reflected in a story you write in that state. Dark and mysterious or the feeling needed to be conveyed in the text will transform how you write. Be in the moment, experiencing every aspect and action.
Choose a story you want to READ and write it. The first effort should be a complete enjoyment. Write as though nobody other than you will read what you write, but give it substance by answering every question you can imagine a reader might have as the story unfolds. That may prove difficult. You will have answered all of questions before you write The End, at least most of the questions will be answered.
Fears reasons and excuses reduced will help you make the beginning of the story interesting and lead the reader to have a desire to read more. When the story you write is enjoyable for you to read, you will find an audience who will enjoy reading and tell others about their reading experience and why the others should enjoy your work.
Above everything, start writing and you will be pleasantly surprised when you finish and write The End, all of the fears reasons and excuses will have long since faded into oblivion.

Fears reasons and excuses will rear up if they are allowed because that occurrence is when the difficult labor begins. It can be mitigated to be less harrowing. Ask how and remember to write without fear. Edit without mercy and celebrate not using the inkwell and quill pen from the distant past. The good old days were not really so good in obvious ways, such as typewriter and paper with corrections done using the old style quill and inkwell. Overcome fears, reasons and excuses to write as you dare. Convention be damned. The privilege is yours to follow your instincts and be different as was my thinking when I started the text in writing Jon Bartleaux, Birth. The second sentence gives insight to the single word that is the first sentence of my creation. The constant continuation of life. It brings such a wonderfully miraculous event and joy filled occasion. My emergence into this world was not such a celebrated event. The usual shock against a newborn’s body from temperature change and subsequent voluntary gulping of oxygen to fill infantile lungs did not happen. I did not scream a protest or flail my limbs. I remained limp, without body functions. I was not considered to be among the living.
