Howdy, all!

Rather obviously, I'm new here. So maybe you'll want to know just exactly why I'm here, right?

For a while now I've been trying to write a book. And by "for a while" I mean about 4 1/2 years. And by "trying" I mean that I'm a perfectionist and thus I always despise my own writing when I'm done. This is not condusive to finishing a novel. So I'm looking here for ways to help me get past my writer's block and annoying perfectionism.

See y'alls around!

You're not blocked, you're just looking for excuses to put off your novel because you fear rejection. This is a common fault of the amateur writer, and they confuse it with "Writer's Block."
