Pressing Pause

Episode #128

How the book writing process presses my perfectionist buttons

Gabrielle Treanor


Writing a book to be traditionally published challenged me in ways that I didn’t fully expect, a big one being my perfectionism (which is not just about wanting perfection). In this episode I share the different, often sneaky ways that perfectionism shows up, I share how writing brought up those fears and how I dealt with them while in the thick of the process.
