The first draft is just you telling yourself the story. ~Terry Pratchett
How cool is that? I had never thought of it that way, but it’s so true. If we can look at writing in this way, it will so help us in ignoring all the mistakes we make. It’s OK if we make mistakes when we tell ourselves the story.
We’re not gonna share it with others, or if we do, that’s OK too, because it’s still just for us. We don’t need to stress over anything we wrote in it. Just enjoy what we wrote and know that it’s only going to get better.
