Have you ever suffered from "Writer's Stage Fright"? Explain....
Sure. Sometimes I do feel self-conscious about my writing, especially when people like certain things about my writing that I didn't even know about. It makes me feel as if I have an obligation to my readers to keep getting better and the prospect of disappointing them freezes me in my tracks, much like actual stage fright.
I think many writers suffer from stage fright when they are first beginning to submit their work. I know I wishy washed around with 3 great article ideas, only to find I'd procrastinated (from fear of nobody liking my work) until someone else had the same ideas and actually submitted the articles. It was a horrible feeling. . .sitting in a doctor's office reading an article that I'd been bandying about for a year. I went home that day and put the finishing touches on another article I'd been working on and sent it off. A few weeks later I received a rejection, saying the magazine I submitted to had gone out of business, but on my article were the words "Your article is excellent" written in red ink. That helped me tremendously in getting over the stage fright of submitting my articles.
Yes, every time you write something especially when your writing for someone else you can get writers block AKA writers stage fright. This can also occur when your expected to meet a deadline or perform a certain quality of work.

The beginning should be strong. And I also know that I should concentrate only on the presentation. Besides these what else should I do?

Like a writer's block, has any of you suffered from a question block?I hope I'm using the right term? It's when one doesn't know what questions to ask at the present moment.
