      Finding balance is tricky, particularly when the kids are young.

    Stephen Cannell is right when he says the need to be perfect often triggers what we call “writer’s block.” We start the editing process before we begin writing. I used to fret over finding that one “right” sentence or word to start a paragraph. Now I insert capital Xs or nonsensical words as place markers in the text, then come back later with a solution.

    I also take periodic breaks from writing to get recharged.

      Valerie, that’s what I do… usually xxxs so I can search for them – and I wouldn’t know perfection if it knocked on the door and introduced itself.
