One of the biggest problems I used to have with my writing was the idea of not publishing a perfect end result. I’d worry about punctuation and tense. I’d worry about how it came off to the reader. Would they agree or disagree with what I said. All of this worrying only caused me to do one thing: not write. It didn’t help me become a better writer, which is my main goal of the blog.

Don’t get me wrong you should work to improve your writing but if you consume yourself with perfect then you’ll never write anything. Which is worse: misplacing a comma or never writing anything?

It’s good to practice. It’s good to learn from your mistakes. Just don’t let the fear of mistakes hold you back from starting. Nobody was ever perfect the first time they tried a new skill. 

You won’t be perfect either.
