The “Gather the Wind” Zine is my effort to focus on my creative writing. I have wanted to be a published author ever since I was a child but perfectionism has kept me frozen.
Nothing is ever finished or good enough for me to publish. In fact, while I have had many personal essays published, I continue to revise them even after editors have given the pieces the OK. I place a lot of pressure on myself, and it has rubbed off on my daughter. She also struggles with perfectionism.
