As I have written this blog over these past few months, I’ve fought the urge to go back and revise my writing.
It’s been a purposeful refusal to revise.
A refusal that I’ve had to fight hard against. I tend to forget articles, insert too many commas. You’d think being an English speaker and an English Lit major I’d have it all down. But I don’t.
This refusal to revise has helped me get over some of my perfection tendencies. I used to think I couldn’t publish something unless is was absolutely perfect. Now, I’m publishing because I can and I committed to doing it every day.
If my thoughts aren’t finished, a sentence isn’t quite right, or somethings wonky, know that putting something online everyday is helping me become.
Here I am again, unvarnished, imperfect, unrevised. ❤
