I am so guilty of trying to write instead of just doing it.
So many bloggy folks are doing Nanowrimo and I got excited and wanted to join in! I even told my hubby to do it too! Well, he got on the case….he actually got writing. And he doesn’t even want to be a writer….he is a business dude, for goodness sake. He is in the middle of starting a business. But yes, he got on the case and frankly, I am jealous that he is writing with abandon. Not worrying if the right word is on the page, but just getting it all down. He is going at it like the business guy that he is. It doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be started. Perfection can wait. It is a project to be completed for him. Just like a business.
I guess I want to be like that. I don’t want to worry about each word. But I am a writer, a worrier, and an over thinker. I can take a few lessons from him, but in the end, I have to accept that I do it my way, otherwise I just end up getting so disappointed at myself. I am impressed at how he taps away at the keyboard, words flowing out all over the place. I can only try to take what I can take from the way he does it, and that is, perfection will have to wait. Getting it out on the paper can only bring more satisfaction than letting it sit in my head.
Just. Do. It.
Okay, I will.
