Delete Challenge

So I've written about four different posts today. Each time I get about half way through, decide it isn't good enough, and put my delete button to work. I keep spinning my wheels and am getting nowhere.

I often feel like this in my writing. I write something, go back and read what I wrote and hate it and put my delete button to work. I think I'm wearing it out. I get nowhere in my writing and become discouraged.

Having realized this I'm setting a goal for myself. For the next month, whatever I write, no matter how bad it is, I'm not deleting it. I'm just going to plow forward. I'll give an update at the end of the month and let you know how it went.

I encourage anyone that struggles with an overactive delete button to join me in this challenge. Give that button a much needed vacation!


  1. Hi, my name is Lisa, and I'm a delete key addict. It has been 23 minutes since I pressed the delete key last. I need help!

    So, my problem too. I've had to make a personal commitment to not overuse that evil key. Though the word "overuse" is so subjective.

  2. Way to go, Sugoi. I'm so there with ya!!!!
