Cool blog with some good writing tips

Hi, folks. Monday and it must be a writing tip day. Looks like a lot of other bloggers do that, too, and here’s Maria McKenzie with a really good one from Read and Write Romance at Blogspot:


Here’s the link to her blog.

Using Anne Lamott’s points about avoiding perfectionism, McKenzie notes:

Being too tidy, according to Ms. Lamott, suggests that something is as good as it’s going to get. In a previous post here, not looking back when writing a manuscript was discussed.

The important thing is to finish. Plow ahead, make a mess! Don’t worry about every little detail or whether or not it’s polished enough. That comes later, at revision time.

Have fun with that first draft; avoiding perfectionism allows a really great story to unfold! Do you struggle with perfectionism? Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

So true. Thanks, Ms. McKenzie. And thanks, too, Ms. Lamott.
