Ten Reasons Why I’m Not Going To Quit These Blogging/Writing Courses Even Though I Decided To An Hour Ago

  1. I am really just running into that wall of old brain fog that arises when I feel exposed.
  2. It’s just some annoying and unhelpful form of social anxiety.
  3. It’s a type of perfectionism and it’s a hang up.
  4. I freak out when I am challenged to write something quickly and it might not be fabulous yet.
  5. Maybe I’m anxious that I’m in a developing form, not yet perfect.
  6. It would actually be horrible to be someone who’s perfect.
  7. I don’t even want to be perfect; it’s boring and ridiculous.
  8. A perfect person would be mythological and doomed to fall, which would be actually interesting to read about!
  9. Didn’t I join this program to grow? If it didn’t feel a bit uncomfortable, it would be worthless.

    You took the words right out of my mouth!

    I’s not a requirement to publish a post each day. You can use these ideas for private writing practice/journaling/free-writing. Or you can simply file these emails away, for a rainy day, when you have time in the future.

    I don’t think anyone expects the writing that comes out of month-long challenges like this to be perfect — I look at it as simply pushing yourself to churn out new, fresh material. Then, later, you have raw material to work with. You can pick and choose the assignment responses you’d like to publish on your blog, if any.

    Thanks for signing up for this course!

  2. For the perfectionists amongst us posting something that doesn’t feel perfect, or at least not quite right, can trigger a lot of uncomfortable feelings, after all it’s there for eternity, or is it? The fact is it isn’t. We can go back and edit or even delete when we like, or at least I think we can?? In any event an imperfect post shows we are still a work in progress, and that is fine. No-one likes a know it all.
