WRITE DRUNK, EDIT SOBER

Posted by | July 18, 2011 | Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s a lesson we learned from a friend of ours years ago. Too many of us want to write the first draft perfectly. So we start editing ourselves in our heads before we even put anything down on paper. The result is paralysis. If you want to write well – and effortlessly – don’t edit your first draft. Just put down whatever comes to mind; you can fix it afterwards. In other words, “write drunk. Edit sober.”
