I started to learn to be okay with imperfection. I found my safe zone which I don’t feel pressure to make the words readable or likable or marketable. I just choose to be present, to listen to myself, and to lean into my thoughts and feelings.
Exactly. This is what writing is all about — expressing how we feel into words that describe our thoughts and emotions. It’s cool to share our own work with others to see, but we can’t forget the reason why we started writing in the first place.
Thanks for writing this, Ane :)
