“You might not write well every day,

but you can always edit a bad page.

You can’t edit a blank page.”

“Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s theonly way you can do anything really good.”

“You can do it. You can write that first draft, so that you can then go on to the act of revision. But the first draft must be completed before you can achieve your finished book, and you can do it” (21). Get The Draft Done! Helping Writers Finish Their First Draft.
