Make Your Writing Perfect with These Simple Hints
‘Perfection’ to me is, I walk away from a situation and say, ‘I did everything I could do right there. There was nothing more that I could do.’ I was a hundred percent like the meter was at the top. There was nothing else I could have done. You know? Like, I worked as hard as I possibly could have. That’s perfection. I would like to have such perfection in essays’
Have you ever wondered what the word perfect means? It’s an adjective that defines something that is complete and whole. It’s something that lacks nothing. So, take a look at the simple things. Is the sunset perfect? What about your children playing in the yard and laughing like they are the happiest on the whole planet? Is a flower perfect? Is the ocean lacking anything? Of course, I hope that NO.
All these things are perfect because they are complete and not lacking anything. The thing is when you try to create something, don’t think how to make it perfect, it’s already perfect by its nature. The things are what they are. That’s the beauty and perfection of them. The understanding of this will help you improve your work. Believe me.
Question that Kills Perfect Works
Sometimes I receive the question from writers to tell whether some piece of writing is GOOD or BAD.
Hmm, that’ the tough one. And you know why? Because I will never be able to answer this question. It’s a wrong question. Who am I to decide what is good or bad. This question killed thousands of worth-reading papers. Don’t you ever think that maybe your writing is not enough to be perfect? If you’ve discovered something inside you that made you write even those first few sentences, finish the whole writing. It is supposed to be. Try to be true to it. It’s an art. If you want to know whether it’s good. Just answer these questions. Is it lacking anything? Is it complete? Yes? Then it’s perfect.
Be confident, be true, make your art perfect, no matter what they say. Chase the power that will lead you to the beautiful notion of perfection.
