Hey there! As people are gearing up for National Novel Writing Month, I’m hearing lots of people say how one of their biggest struggles is not fixing and rewriting what they’ve already put down on the page.

Compulsive reworking and editing, rather than moving forward, isn’t only an issue during NaNoWriMo. It can actually hold you back from your goals of being a successful author (or screenwriter or short story writer, for that matter). I made this video to talk about how to be less perfectionistic and more focused on finishing your work. I hope you like it!



Have you struggled with being a perfectionist in your own writing? What’s helped you get over it? Let us know in the comments section! Thanks for reading (and watching), and have a great week!
