The Demon Perfectionism

Conference Workshop

Writers are often gripped by paralysis when they sit down to write.  The old term for it was 'writer's block' but it is less of a block than a simple fear of being wrong---using the wrong word, the wrong structure, the wrong image.  So, the safest thing seems to be to never finish it, or even more effective, never start it.  We will explore this problem and present some techniques for overcoming and slaying these demons, so you can be free to move on to the next stage of creation.
