“This is on my mind because next month is National Novel Writing Month. It’s an opportunity not only to join a novel-writing boot camp—showing up to write 1,677 words a day for a month—but an opportunity to join a novel-writing playground.” I love this which is one big reason I’m looking forward to NaNoWriMo this year. Another chance to PLAY. It’s also what I endeavor to bring to my Write on Purpose clients. Thanks, Grant

Such a thoughtful post. This focus on perfectionism was one of the reasons our son quit his fabulous music teacher saying he would never make her happy. Bur he returned six years later after he was done with college and as a man in his late 20s and is loving it. Writing, as you put it so well, has to be taught as a way to express what you’re feeling and thinking. The magic that will happen in the classroom!!!!
