I've become a perfectionist about my writing.
This will amuse those of you who know me well; I'm not a perfectionist about anything else. I'm one of those people lucky and clever enough that I've been able to skate through school and career without too much effort. I worked hard at school and my various jobs, but I always had a stopping point at which I knew it was good enough. With a few painful exceptions, I was usually right.
Perhaps that's my problem now; I don't have an agent, I've never had any fiction published. So I have no sense of "good enough" in terms of my writing, except that it's never been good enough before.
I think some people around me believe I'm working too hard. In comparison to some of my classmates, I'm putting in a lot more time. But writing is what I've wanted to do since I was a little kid. I'm pursuing my dream.
So it makes sense that I'll push and push until I know Project Sparkle is absolutely right. Or at least the best that I can do in the next 17 days.
Are you a perfectionist about your writing? Other things?
