Writing is a lot like a relationship. There are great highs, terrible lows, as well as wonderful moments when the relationship between the writer and their writing just clicks. However, sometimes there are also symptoms of blind love. This occurs when a writer just fails to recognize when their writing is flawed and still needs some work. Alternately, there’s the over-controlling writer who just won’t leave their writing alone and will over-edit their work.
Have a great relationship with your writing by finding balance: Know when you need to put time into your relationship with your written piece and learn to let it go.
Whatever your relationship with your writing, remember:
It’s okay to love your writing. Just don’t looove your writing.
