I'm The Dictator
According to an article in the November 2007 issue The Writer there are generally four different kinds of writing personalities.
A writing coach of five years noticed that each of her clientele fell into one of four categories: The Distractionist, The Dictator, The Perfectionist, and The Commitment-Phobe.
The titles pretty much describe the types.
The Distractionist is filled with great ideas, but quickly loses interest in each one he/she works on. He/She might have several unfinished projects with no desire to finish any of them.
The Dictator can keep a deadline, but often refuses to evolve. He/She is frequently inflexible in deviating from his/her original vision. Consequently he/she blocks their own creativity with their refusal to just relax and let go.
The Perfectionist is too busy trying to perfect every word and phrase they seldom get anything written.
The Commitment-Phobe finds it hard to settle on one project and when he/she does they spend time thinking of the projects they didn’t go with.
I think of all of them I’m mostly the Dictator. Things that might help me? Journaling (*giggles*), yoga, taking a page from the Commitment-Phobe…
