Terri Windling on Perfectionism

Terri Windling has written a lovely essay on perfectionism and how it can destroy creative people.  Now consider that the educational system is less and less inclined to tolerate mistakes of any kind, ever, at all.  It raises the stakes from a very young age, which predictably results in more children getting suspended (they're doing that in preschools now) and vomiting from stress during standardized tests.  Imagine what that's doing to the creatives among them.  >_<
