On not writing – perfectly

This describes it perfectly doesn’t it:

Perfectionism is really dangerous because if your fidelity to perfection is too high you never do anything because doing anything results in a … tragedy …because you sacrifice how gorgeous and perfect it is in your head for what it really is”.
David Foster Wallace

Lots of really interesting short videos at PBS Digital, especially if you are looking to distract yourself from writing anything that is less than perfect ha ha!

Watch the rest of the PBS Digital video here and then check out Philip Seymour Hoffman on happiness vs pleasure if you are a serious procrastinator.

Celebrating Australian Women’s Writers on IWD

It’s International Women’s Day and what better way to acknowledge inspiring women than to Join the Australian Women Writers 2012 Reading and Reviewing Challenge.  Even though I’ve given the competition a two month head start I think I can aim for the Franklin-fantastic level and read at least 10 books this year and review 4.

Of course I am a dabbler so I will be reading across genres from fiction to business and I look forward to exchanging book reviews and finding out about the many women writers with whom I am yet to be acquainted.
