Just get it written...

"Don't get it right, 
just get it written." 

~ James Thurber

This is what I have to tell myself whenever I'm writing the first draft of a story.  So often I find myself wanting to stop, go back, and revise something I've just written.  What I need to do, though, is to keep on writing until I get the whole story out of my head and onto paper or a computer screen.  When it's all been written, then I can go back and start revising to get my story "right".
