I remember it like it was yesterday. I spent months crafting this piece. It never felt right. I tore apart every sentence a dozen times. I questioned every word. It felt like I was in a romantic relationship with my thesaurus and style guide.
This was a sales letter for my first copywriting piece. It took about three months from start to finish. It should have taken two to three weeks. Good enough would never cut it. I craved perfection.
