The Not Perfect as Perfect

We often hold such high expectations for our writing. Too often, these high expectations, which we couch in terms such as "rigor" and "excellence", often are less about those lofty goals than about our own insecurities.

"I have to be prefect or they will find out that I am a fake. I will be exposed."

Yes, the internalized voice of impostor syndrome; of the critique. It slows us, gets in our way.

I have been having a bit of this of late with my blog. I think I have written less as I have been "waiting" for more inspiration, brilliance; the muse to bestow something meaningful for my readers.

Practice what I preach. Post.
