As an author and teacher, I agree with Marcy that fear is very important in the process of writing. There's tremendous energy in fear so when writers allow themselves to enter it, it can be a terrifying but, at the same time, a rich experience. I wish I could remember the quote I've always loved from Beckett about how being "between things" is the most potent place to be. I think that when a writer is in the area of her fear, she is between the known and unknown and this allows what never had space before to flower.
