Held back by a good thing

Posted: October 21, 2014 in Uncategorized

Sometimes, the things we think are good and healthy in our lives turn out to be holding us back from the growth we need.

For example, I know that my inner editor is a great thing when used at the right time. However, when I’m trying to get the words on the page, it’s a great hindrance. That’s why, for me, NaNoWriMo is a great experience. I can practice getting the words on the page without worrying about whether they are right or wrong, whether they flow properly or not, and get to the basics of the story. Then, when the story is on the page, I can go back and fill it in as needed.

What good thing is holding you back?
