Another writing exercise from Julia Cameron, this one called "Soldiering Through." (Though it could just as aptly be titled "Crushing Your Inner Perfectionist.")

Number 1 to 10 and finish this sentence as quickly as possible:

"If my ego would allow it, I'd try..."

1. Becoming fluent in French.
2. Taking up ballet.
3. Learning yoga.
4. Writing more poetry.
5. Playing the piano (well).
6. Learning to play guitar.
7. Moving overseas.
8. Going to graduate school.
9. Writing the extensive story of our time in Oxford.
10. Knitting a sweater or cape.

What is your inner perfectionist keeping YOU from? And does anyone have ideas on how to combat these blasted inner fiends?

OMGosh - no biologically member of the "Self" family has ever wondered what they could do if they had the ego.
