You might get it wrong

The danger of sharing your writing is that you might get it wrong.

You could discover a clunky sentence or a glaring error in your prose after it’s sent.

It happens.

Certainly, we should send the best version of our writing, but the real goal is to just send it.

We’ll likely never get it perfect, and the best way to improve is through practice.

So your mistakes as guideposts on your path to becoming the writer you want to be.
