Perfectionism strikes again …

Perfectionism … Aaargh!

That was the title of my first blog post and it seems to have struck again.

To encourage myself to be content with writing that is less than perfect, I will be posting perfectionism quotes for a few days …

If Tolkien had the same struggle, I’m in good company. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi, I am trying to use this quote in a paper for college regarding my perfectionist personality. But I can’t find the page number that it appeared on in the book anywhere! I really don’t want to have to read a 400 plus page book just to use this quote on my one page paper so I was wondering if you happened to know what page this is on? I know its a long shot… But if you had any information that would be incredible! (P.S. I think its amazing that you homeschool! My mom homeschooled me for 2nd grade through 10th grade and she didn’t continue only because I wanted to be part of the running start program at our local community college! It was an amazing experience!)
