When I read this post, it made me think about the subject matter of She Makes It Look Easy (affectionately known around these parts as SMILE). I wanted to direct you guys to it because I think you'll agree with the conclusions writer Camille Noe Pagan comes to. I loved what she said about comparing herself to another writer who takes five years to write a book. I write fast, like she does, and sometimes beat myself up for not being more of an artiste. But we moms have to write fast-- if you're anything like me you do everything fast, zipping around your house like the Tasmanian Devil. But hey, at least it gets done... right?
Perfection is paralyzing-- but good is great. I'd rather be a Tasmanian Devil... and do a good job, only leaving little messes in my wake. Messes can, after all, be cleaned up.
Don't forget to check out Camille Noe Pagan's new book, The Art of Forgetting, which came out June 9th, while you're over at her site! Don't you just love that cover??
