Writing is what I’ve wanted to do since 3rd grade. I’m turning 35 next month, and I’ve never written a book or submitted an article for publication. They say that deep down, procrastination is really about perfectionism. I, uh, must really want to be perfect?
But in all seriousness, I confess to putting too much pressure on my writing goals. When I try to sit down to blog, do a review, or write fiction, it’s never just about the project in front of me. It’s always about creating something so great it will be my ticket out of a frustrating day job. A path to the life I’ve always wanted.
With pressure like that, who could focus on the paragraph at hand?
As a pre-birthday promise to myself, I’m going to take the plunge and commit to getting words on the page on a consistent basis.
