Permission to do things badly
Wednesday, January 23, 2019
One of the bits of writing advise you always hear is to give yourself permission to write badly. Even bad writing is better than no writing and you do get better with practice.
I enjoy answering the trivia questions here on Spark and I truly suck at it. My average hovers around 60. it is one of my favorite things to do on the site and I'm learning. One of things I'm learning is that I know very little about fitness and nutrition. No wonder I struggle with my weight!
I'm ready to take this permission to do poorly into other areas of my life. I've always wanted to learn French and I study and read but I'm afraid to speak the language because I'll sound stupid. I also recognize that my spoken French won't improve if I don't practice so I need to get past that. Using the Spark theory I am going to exchange one sentence, in French, each day with my Francophile friend at work. Allons-y
