It's not about perfectionism (you can perfect your writing till you're blue in the face and not make it better).
It's about pushing yourself to the limits of what you can do.
It's not about pleasing others (you can never please everyone with your writing—by trying to do so you'll end up pleasing no one).
It's about pleasing your sense of accomplishment, knowing you did your best.
It's not about the word count or the chapter count or the book count (it doesn't matter in the end how many of what you've written—it's better to leave one mind-shattering story than a million mediocre ones).
It's about showing up. Every day. To write.
TO CONTINUE GROWING.
