Not Perfect, Not Bad...just GOOD ENOUGH

Now that I'm actually getting into my writing, I'm having the hardest time not massaging my words to death. The truth is I've always suffered from this. I've been the type of writer who does not go onto the next sentence until the previous one is perfect. I am training myself out of that now. But I'm still a perfectionist. I comb over what I've written and change and tweak. I never regret doing so...every avenue I explore leads me down another interesting path. The problem is right now I don't have TIME to do that! I have a month and a half to write 3 more chapters. I don't know if that is even possible! So I just have to write something passable. My mantra for the next two months is going to be "let go, go on."

you cannot tell if a word or sentence is perfect until it is within its chapter, and then only in reference to the whole work, so the best thing to do is to write it and realize inherently that if you have time later, you will consider each choice in the context of the whole project.

It sounds like an excellent plan. You will be forever plagued by the 'paralysis of analysis' if you don't loosen up your restrictions on yourself. I know that when I was writing my last chapter before the conclusion, I was hating myself for not following every thread that materialized. Yours is a style issue and mine had to do with content, but very similar. Just remember that you will have the opportunity to tweak things between the defense and the final submission. Your work now is just to create a submittable (is that a word?) dissertation. So, yes, you have to give up some perfectionism!

Heh heh...I like that...submittable dissertation. Maybe if I'm successful I could write the book "How to Write a Submittable Dissertation." That's really all that matters. I will tell myself that over and over!
