Writing tip by Kenneth Atchity

This week's writing tip comes from Kenneth Atchity's book, A Writer's Time, p. 58:

Constantly extending a deadline is a symptom of a dangerous syndrome: perfectionism and a lack of self-confidence. If you're afraid to stop working on a manuscript, remember that no book, however long the time producing it, will be perfect. Strive instead to perfect the way you spend your writing time.
