I relate to this so much. I find it difficult to maintain a balance and find the right boundaries. Sometimes I write something, and I only see the excess (or the lack of substance) months later. Which often creates this quandary… do I wait to publish until I have something passable, or do I just publish and wait and revisit when I have more experience?
I guess it starts to find a balance on its own after some time… like, I feel as though I was on shakier grounds 6 months ago, and now if anything else, my observation skills have improved! I’m finding details from my own life to write about, details I was completely unaware of before.
I suppose that’s something!
Great story as always!
