What is your writing kryptonite?

On the DIY MFA Facebook page, a poster accompanies this question of the week. The quote is attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Our strength grows out of our weakness.” I heard this same sentiment articulate another way: “Our weaknesses are our strengths taken to an extreme.”

So what’s my writing kryptonite? Perfectionism. Heavy revising. Too much research. Trying to get it absolutely right. Trying to do too much.

OK, that was a litany of insecurities. That was not identifying my writing kryptonite. So let me do that: perfectionism.

The DIY MFA Street Team was formed to help promote the new DIY MFA book, to be launched soon. Here’s the website: DIY MFA Book by Gabriela Pareira.
