So, I talked about drafts a few days ago. I talked about how first drafts are often filthy.
And, filthy as they might be, you have to be kind to yourself. Everyone has written a horrible draft somewhere along the line. But you have to be kind to yourself. You can’t bash yourself for a bad draft. Maybe just put it aside for a little and then come back to it later with open eyes.
Oftentimes there are merits in even the worst of drafts. Believe me. Even if you think that your draft is the worst thing that has ever been written by a person, there will be something that you can salvage and use.
So be kind to yourself!
