Sharing a blog post on perfection in writing

It's Sunday, and a long weekend, and I thought I'd share a post I enjoyed reading, by writer Dean
Wesley Smith

He watches the TV show, The Voice, and says...
I know most of you reading this will just shake your head and go away and wonder why we are watching a reality show like The Voice. The reason is that we learn a ton from it every season. We learn about drive, about technique, and about how really dangerous perfection can be to an art.
Interesting blog post if you've got a few minutes, especially if you're a fellow writer. Some great stuff in the comments, too.
