Why ‘perfect’ should be a 4 letter word!

I want my blog posts to be perfect – full of photos as I go step by step through my creative process.  I want it to look like the blog posts from bloggers that I admire and enjoy reading.

The truth is:  those kind of blogs are not me.

I get a bit paralyzed in my pursuit of perfection.  I edit and re-edit.  I agonize.  I lose sleep trying to find the right turn of phrase, to edit the picture just right.  I kick myself when I forget to take pictures or if I just don’t feel like taking those pictures.

When I get involved in something I want to plow through, not stop to take great photos.  So I am going to relax from now on and just dash something off.  It is going to be more of a record of what I’m up to then any kind of detail.

This idea of ‘perfect’ is becoming an obsession, a four-letter word!  It stops me from posting.  I want to shake this NOW.

So, you will see more posts but less detail and less pictures.

But, because this post looks so naked, here’s a picture:
