Welcome to another installment of Writing Myths Monday. Let’s jump right in.
Writing Myth #5 – My first draft must be perfect. Wow, talk about pressure. I don’t know many things in life that I’ve done perfect the first time around, especially when it comes to writing. The goal of your first draft is to get the story from your brain to the page. I can almost guarantee that your first draft will be scary or even crap, but it’s crap you can work with. Many writers don’t feel like they are very good writers, but they are awesome re-writers.
So don’t beat yourself up. Get your story on to the paper or the computer. Then you can start working toward perfection.
Until next time, be happy, stay safe and good writing vibes into he universe.
