"Write your first draft... VERY fast!"


I cannot stress this somewhat simple point enough. It's VERY important.

Fast writing, written when you are ablaze, always carries the most passion and conviction and "convincing power"!

Look, you can always "tone it down" later. Your first draft has to be written fast and furious! Don't worry about spelling. Don't worry about grammar. Don't worry about punctuation. Don't worry about too many "that's". Don't worry about offending anyone. Don't worry about facts (how many miles to the gallon does this gizmo give anyway?)

Just Write!

Write Fast!

Write Furious!
