Erica from yeahwrite.me stopped by to give me my beautiful blog button! Isn’t it gorgeous?
I may not have written my best stuff this month. I clicked “published” before I was ready. Before November, I had become almost paralyzed in my writing. If it wasn’t the best, I didn’t want to put it out there. I agree with the belief that quality matters more than quantity, but practice also makes perfect, right? And practicing certainly isn’t always perfect. Practice is the process, and during the process there are bound to be mistakes.
I love the challenge of writing a post every day. It forces me out of my need for perfection. It forces me to click “publish” even when I don’t think my post is perfect. This is good. If I waited for my writing to be perfect, it would be a long time before you read my writing again. Either that, or I would edit my writing right down to nothing!
Here’s something else I’ve been working on; my sister helped me to make this video for The Mother of All Meltdowns and the special promotions we have this month! Be sure to visit our website for more details on the sale!
Watch the video on my YouTube channel.

Brilliant! I can’t help thinking that your girls LOVED helping you make this video.
I get the same way about my writing, especially after a success or guest post or syndication. I want everything to be perfect. I want everything to have 100 comments and to make people laugh and cry. And it’s just not possible, but I get paralyzed too.
Today’s post was just fun, and I’m happy to have done it and not burned the midnight oil last night with something heavy.

First of all – LOVE the video!! Secondly, congrats on NaBloPoMo. I was too chicken to commit, but I like your point about being forced out of the need for perfection. Sometimes we writers should just write! 🙂

It is hard to commit to, since I hate to give up! But each year I’ve participated, it has become a little easier. Fortunately, November is only 30 days long!
I did one of those challenges at the beginning of the year and it wasn’t my best writing either, but it sure improved my speed of writing! And that is what my daughter’s room actually looks like on most days…loved the video!
Thank you! I think my daughter had fun making it, too! It’s not every day that I tell her to throw clothes on the floor. 😉
