As for the IWSG, I owe you all another great big thank you! Thank you for welcoming me and my wild insecurities with open arms last month. It really helped to find out I was not alone in my neurosis. Although, now you've done it, because you welcomed me so warmly, I plan on staying. And you'll have to read posts like this one. Muaaahh!!!
So, Zombies, Britney Spears and Writing, Oh My. I know what you are thinking- my gawd this girl really has gone off the rails on the crazy train. But I promise I have a point and it is relevant to the IWSG.

I torture myself. I wish I had the strength to just let something I write stand on it's own, before tearing it apart. But how do you stop yourself, from being your own worst enemy? We all sat by and watched poor Miss Britney spiral out of control and self-destruct. As a mom of three girls, it was especially painful for me to watch. I wanted to reach out and help. I wanted to hug her and tell her to slow down, stop the crazy and pull it together. I wanted to fix it. But no one, not her parents, or her partner or her manager could help until she acknowledged the problem herself. Thankfully, she seems to have finally conquered her demons and worked it out. How can I do the same? Because I fully realize I'm doing it, yet I just can't seem to stop myself!
Do any of you suffer from a serious case of the Zombies and Miss Britney? What helps pull you out of a self-destructive spiral, when editing your work?
