Dear Me

The Prompt – Write a letter to yourself reflecting on who you are as a writer.
The Twist – Choose one skill from the course that you really worked on and feature it in your letter (voice, tone, brevity, perspective, strong verbs, etc.)

Dear Me,

You are a procrastinator and perfectionist. It’s ridiculous. If you don’t have just the right words, you put it off. If you don’t think you will get it right, you delay. If you think it’s not ideal, you stall.

Stop it. (Actually, start it.)

Just sit down, shut up and write.

That is all.

Also Me

P.S. Don’t forget to enjoy it. That’s an order.

    I think I have the same deal going — perfectionist/procrastinator. Fun combination. 🙂
    Your letter is brilliant!
