  •  I know what you mean about being work in progress (7+ / 0-)

    When I was in an acting group in college, we had a mantra, that it was about the process more than the product. As long as we were learning and growing, the sky was the limit.

    I frequently get frustrated with my own perfectionism, with wanting to achieve four different things at once. But it occurred to me, and I find it immensely reassuring, that I expect to be writing weekly diaries for a couple of years or more. So a year from now I'll be writing diaries that are significantly better in several respects, just because I'll have had a lot of practice at all the things I struggle with now. Then I can find whole new things to struggle with. I do love just how much there is to writing.
