When it comes to building a writing practice (or any practice, for that matter) a good mantra is “progress not perfection.”
I can’t recall where I first heard that phrase, but remembering it is one practice I’ve yet to perfect. Whenever I manage to retrieve it from the memory vault, it’s a “Eureka!” moment. I can vault past my writer’s block or my wish to procrastinate and get some words onto the page. Or I can take a break and do something else entirely.
