“Nothing is invented and perfected at the same time.”
— John Ray
Let’s talk about doing stuff. Writing, for example, but it could be anything.
The opportunity for endless revisions are practically infinite. Actually, there are infinite opportunities to avoid even getting started, too.
There’s the thinking about it, the planning, the getting ready to get ready, the getting ready, the outlining, the second-guessing, the research… and so on…
But let’s say you actually get started. Congratulations, by the way.
Here’s what’s not next: the fixing, revising, perfecting.
Avoid that backspace key. Just keep going.
When it’s time to create — anything — it’s time to put on your creator hat and create. It’s not time to put on your editor hat (yet). And don’t get up to get coffee, either. You’re too busy doing your thing.
