I'm really feeling it!

The Perfectionist vs. the Bottom of the Barrel

When it comes to writing, I’m a perfectionist. That’s why it was really difficult for me to take on the SixTAY Days of Writing challenge. That’s why I didn’t finish a lot of the articles I planned to during this challenge.

I have this mentality of if it isn’t perfect why even bother posting it. The problem with that is that I don’t get things done timely, or I just flat out don’t do them. It’s bad and it causes me more harm than good a lot of the time.


Now look where I am. I’m in the final hours of the challenge and I’m churning out silly garbage without any polish. It’s kind of liberating in a way. Sometimes, scraping the bottom of the barrel is fun. Overall, I think it can be a good exercise in not getting caught up on making sure you get things exactly perfect.
