After two recent posts on finding the perfect words you may be feeling discouraged. I hear you thinking, “That’s so much work!” Indeed it is. I happen to enjoy editing and rewording. It’s one of my favorite sports — up to a point. Then, well, I get bored. I get tired. I get other ideas and want to move on. That happens sooner on some pieces than others.
Novelist Karen Hancock addressed this condition with a quote in her blog: “This is where I have to start applying that Tom Clancy quote about good enough being good enough, whereas perfect is a total pain and often not worth the trouble anyway.”
Well said, Karen. What more could I add?
