Yes, I think there’s sometimes an unhealthy culture of “publishing shaming” on writing sites. Everyone references how writers like Seth Godin publish new content every day. Sure, we all wish we could be Seth Godin, and that’s a great goal to strive toward. But along the way, I don’t think it does any good for us or our readers to publish our unedited thoughts for all the world to see.

So glad the article was helpful, Laura. Best of luck with your writing!
