Taking myself less seriously

Write you my valentine
Have you ever written a sentence, just any sentence, and then after you look over it, you become dissatisfied with how you've written it? You first notice that you've mispelt 'cynicism' and then you realise you need to put a comma before the 'and', and finally you realise what you wrote didn't make much sense after all! So you 'select all', delete what you wrote and start again. That's been my experience as a writer. I'm trying to word things well. Unfortunately for me, this produces a reluctance to do regular writing, because of my desire to write at a very high standard. Now I don't really want to lower my standard, but I do want to write more! I think I'm going to take myself less seriously, so to speak, so that I'll write more. I think my writing will improve in terms of natural flow and clarity. I can come back over what I've blogged later and fine tune the grammar side of things.

So, I look forward to presenting you with more regular (but lower quality) posts! :P A little part of my inner perfectionist just died when writing that last sentence hehe.
A plus tard.
