This is absolutely true. I am a perfectionist when it comes to my writing. Partly because I do care about what people think but also because I don't want sloppy work to reflect on me. The issue is it has made me OCD! Yesterday I logged about 5 hours of writing and today I removed about half of it! And, I work full-time as a social worker. I am obsessed with writing. It is like a drug to me. I have been thinking of doing something even wilder though and making a full-time career out of it. We'll see just how crazy it gets....
