However as of recently every time I write something its seems like the perfectionist inside of me (which applies only to my writing if only I cared enough to be a perfectionist in say school? But I digress...) speaks loudly at the top of her ever condescending voice, "Wow this really sucks. You can't write to say your life. Just stop now and save me the agony of reading this trash." She can be very mean.
Sometimes I'm lucky and I can shut her up, but she comes and goes as she pleases. Normally she appears after a stretch of writers block. I am just recovering from a eight month span of block, a time that was torture. I could write, if I was lucky, a paragraph a day, not fun. And find she is in my head, again, not helping me write. Any ideas on how to shut her up? Because nothing I've tried is working, I fear the block may return, and I don't know how I'll deal with that again.
