Anne Lamott – Writing Quote Wednesday

Anyone else having trouble just writing and not editing as you go?

I tend to go back and start fixing things right away, because I can’t seem to let the words just sit there on the page. I feel like I have to shape them as I go and it’s slowing me down. I have to remember that I’m trying to get a first draft done quickly so that I can go back and shape it later.

I have to keep telling myself, “It’s supposed to look like this.”

What do you do to keep writing when all you want to do is stop and put the pieces in the right place? Leave me a comment or send me a suggestion on Twitter. Have a great writing day and keep me posted on your NaNoWriMo progress.
