The imperfect writings of an incurable perfectionist

I’ve been playing around with the idea to start a blog for months now, but as it goes with most of my creative ideas, there has always been a reason not to go ahead with it; not important enough, too simple or too complicated. And most of all; not good enough.

But, here I am; starting this adventure anyhow. Still afraid to fail, but what’s the worst that can happen, really?  First I was planning to post whatever I wanted to post, giving it little thought, in the hope of freeing myself from all the great expectations I usually start off with. But a perfectionist isn’t cured in a day. So, I decided to grant myself some structure after all.

The idea is to created a variety of blog posts, such as:

# The imperfect writings of an incurable perfectionist; my place to experiment with some freestyle writing. Good, bad, interesting, boring, funny, sad, anything goes. Or so I hope…

# She; an reflection on a girl who’s remarkably much like me

# Pictures & Poetry;  combining two things I love to do

# Paint & Pencil; room for my drawings, sketches and paintings

# Documenting Delight; an idea inspired by some beautiful online blogs, dedicated to documenting delight.

# Dated Delight;  old photographs of a delightful childhood

# Mind the music;  my life and this blog would be incomplete without a special place for beautiful songs & incredible songwriting.

More than anything, I want to make this a beautiful place; a place where you might stumble upon some inspiration, find that exact image that goes with your mood or where you may discover a new/old songs that simply makes your day. I want to try and write a story, my story; on being my- thirty-old-self way before I was ready for it.  I don’t know if I can do it, or whether this everlasting writer’s block will magically disappear, just because I want it to. But who knows what will happen…
