Perseverance, perfectionism, and the impossible

My initial reason to re-blog this was because of the appealing picture, I adore illusions! The words are also so true in many aspects of our lives. How many of us are perfectionists, never publishing, or finishing, a project because we want it to be just right! This is so reminiscent of my earlier blog on procrastination. Ultimately, we need to ‘just do it!’

impossibleIn a way, I believe that all artists are possessed by this silly ambition: they want to do something no one else has thought of doing before them. They want to create something that’s unique. And perfect. And so they try, again and again, and they always fail. It seems to me that this is what truly motivates us.

We keep on writing because nothing we write is good enough, or at least, as good as we think it should be. Or as good as we think it deserves to be.

No story is ever “finished.” There’s always something to change, to add, to remove.
