Hi guys, how did the weekend go?
Good? Great to hear that 🙂
Today I wanted to pose a question that have been bothering me since a while now, am I a perfectionist?
I mean, ever since I could ever remember, I always find it hard to deliver anything, and even after I do I always think it is lacking somehow. No matter how much time and effort I spend, I always feel I could do better.
I already did lots of writing and coding for school since my first year in college, and even now, each time I look at a paper or a program I always remember all things I could have done and never had enough time too. Some I actually continued to fix even after I returned it to the teachers.
Same can be said about my writing.
I always end up editing, and re-editing my work and never finish the rest of the manuscript, till I discovered the magic of sacking the inner editor and writing stress free with Nano that is.
And now, I am worried about editing my work.
Will end up spending time doing the edit after another and never mark a novel as finished? will ever say enough already and just let it be, no matter how lacking and imperfect it may look?
You see for school, and other assignments, there is a deadline and someone you have to return the work to. But a novel written without any boundaries of time is different.
I am my only boss, and my boss is hard to please…Dear, impossible to please.
Is that what we call a perfectionist?
I guess so, and it is worrisome at best.
