I love this quote by Jodi Picoult. It perfectly summarizes so much of the writing advice I preach:
- first drafts are never perfect, so don’t waste time trying to write a perfect first draft
- don’t edit as you write — give yourself some mental (and even physical) space and come back to it
- editing is as important as writing — if not more important
What does this quote mean to you? Can you apply this advice to things other than writing?
