The Pursuit of Perfection:
And How It Harms Writers
Kristine Kathryn Rusch
In this WMG Writer’s Guide, international bestselling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch discusses the destructive ways peer workshops and the quest for perfection derail many writers’ careers. Listening to critics and academics—amateur and professional—often strips out the joy of writing. And a failure to recognize writing as a business furthers the potential damage.
But Rusch offers hope for writers who have suffered at the hands of critique—external and internal—and outlines a path to healing.
