I cannot agree more…in writing, or in almost any other creative endeavor give yourself permission to suck on the first draft.
Ever watch someone try to write something who doesn’t do this? It’s the most frustrating thing imaginable.
“Oh my god, I have to fix that misspelling of the word “the” in the first sentence.”
NO YOU DO NOT. LET IT GO, PAL. Just get the words out and fix spelling and grammar later.
