Thoughtful Thursday!

Is anyone else a perfectionist? It’s not as awesome as it sounds. Instead of crafting the “perfect” work, I spend a lot of my time paralyzed by the thought of moving forward, and the fear that what I have created isn’t good enough.

Don’t worry, that’s perfectly normal. Here’s something that may help:

Print this out and keep it on your desk. Look at it while you write. Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

If you are like me, the fear of making mistakes or writing something stupid can keep you in Writer’s Block for weeks. I’ve put off chapters for months at a time simply because they weren’t fully worked out in my mind. Your anxiety or self-doubt may not ever fully go away, but it doesn’t have to. As long as you keep writing, you’ll win.
