Perfectionism kills writing.
I don’t put much stuff “out there” because I’m afraid.
Afraid that it’s not good enough. Afraid to share. Afraid of what people will think. Afraid that it can always, always be better.
But when you write to think and you have this urge to share, perfectionism can kill potential. Kill ideas. Kill creative thinking. Kill story.
Logically, I understand this. In terms of action, I haven’t done anything about it. So I’m going to try to start posting stuff. Some of it may be crap. Some of it may be interesting. But the idea is that the exercise of “putting oneself out there” is valuable.
What do you think?
