Edited version of Give Yourself Permission to Suck
Unless you’re willing to write something bad, you’ll never get to something beautiful.
When you write, the first thing you have to do is get something down on paper. Don't analyze it. Know ahead of time that it won’t be very good. This is the only way to get to the second draft and final draft.
This is certainly the wisest approach all kinds of activities.
When you don't know how to do something, move forward anyway and learn as you go.
If you want to do something just do it. You know you're going to suck and you don't want to suck but you have to give yourself permission to suck because it's the only way you're going to get anywhere at all.
