“The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with.”
As writers, we are constantly warned to let go of the need to be perfect with our words.
There is a reason for that. The fact is, even the greatest writers among us have failed to meet that goal.
And yet we keep on dreaming and scheming our way through a project, striving for that elusive, shining place of perfection.
What dreams have you started with in your writing or novel?
And where have those dreams taken you?
Are you OK with the idea that we cannot be perfect in our writing? Are you willing to abandon the quest for perfection and just write?
