Writers, let go of your ideas of perfection, open iWork Pages (or Microsoft Word) and just fly. The perfect first draft is the one that successfully navigates the flight from your heart to your keyboard. That’s it.
Later, you will sculpt it. Work your alchemy. Form it into little sculptures of light.
My last blog post:
27 drafts. (A new low record. Usually, it’s between 85 and 100.)
The only way up this mountain is to just climb it. Lift up your head.
