"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".
