The scariest moment is always just before you start.

Stephen King

Before his first book sold in 1973, Stephen King had to face down fear as he began each new short story and novel. Starting something new — be it a creative project, a relationship, or a major life change — can bring up many questions and doubts. But King reminds us that new beginnings offer something else: possibility. Having published over 60 bestselling novels to date, he embodies the payoff in just starting. After all, as King says, “After that, things can only get better.”
