Perfectionism is the death of creativity (and I'm writing 30 posts in 30 days)

Soooo... starting here has been kind of slow I guess. 

You know what the problem is? My mind. It wants me to do everything perfect all the time. I have a huge list of all the things I want to write about and more topics are being added to that list daily.  But whenever I get to the part where I actually have to write anything... nothing happens. 

I get stuck.

I want to get everything exactly right (without even knowing what exactly right is!), so I end up editing every sentence before I even finishing writing it. Let me tell you, that process will get you absolutely nowhere. 

Today I decided things need to change. I want to be writing again. I have learned & discovered so many things and I want to share!

So, to borrow the words of John Green (and he has written whole books so he knows): I am hereby giving myself permission to suck. 

Because how will I ever find out what not-sucking is, if I never even try? 

And because I am an all-or-nothing kinda gal all the way, I am going to jump into this sucking thing head-first. 

For the next 30 days I will publish a blog every single day. 

I will try to create content that is more than just a funny picture of a cat, but no promises okay?
