…to let go of perfection
NaNoWriMo can feel quite pressured.
There’s that mind-boggling word count to reach, then there’s the ever-growing fear of falling behind on the daily word count, shudder.
While I have that fear (who doesn’t when they’re doing this challenge) I’ve also discovered something I never expected to happen:
I’ve given myself permission to write.
And not only that, I’ve given myself the permission to write imperfectly. My philosophy is that, provided I’ve got something down on paper/on the screen I’ve got something to improve upon at a later date.
Even more surprisingly, by writing through all my doubts, I’m discovering story answers in most unexpected ways.
I’m really beginning to enjoy this, and I’m nearly halfway!
Thanks for reading. Let me know about your progress.
