I’ve not read the book by Natalie Goldberg, but I’ve added it already to my wishlist. Have you read the book Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott? This book really helped me to (temporarily!) silence my internal editor while writing my first draft. It made me realize that most good texts start as crappy drafts.
You might find this article by Mark McGuinness useful, too: http://99u.com/articles/6971/why-your-inner-critic-is-your-best-friend
Looking forward to seeing your new website! 🙂
