Sounds like you’re getting there, Mathew. Be careful with this idea of posting every day. As you admitted, you’re a perfectionist. Even perfectionists can post work that may not be their best, simply because they’re working to schedule (one post a day). Concentrate on better posts and then you won’t be constantly looking to see who’s responding. That’s not going to get your anywhere. Making an impact is everything, and that means very tight, very thoughtful pieces. Hope this helps.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
