This week I learned I am my own worst critic. I finally got some feedback I was waiting on, and the parts that I thought were no good weren’t as bad as I thought!
I was waiting for the feedback to align with my own thoughts because I was so close to the novel and so sure I knew what was going on. But I don’t. Which is kind of hard to admit, but it’s true. And I’m glad I see that now. I don’t have to know everything and I don’t have to be so hard on myself. Yes, I want to make this novel as perfect as possible, but I need to allow myself to learn along the way and not be so perfect.
A shorter post, but I think a HUGE lesson learned!
