Avoid Editing Your First Draft as You Write

Avoid editing as you write your first draft. Simply create—let it freely flow. View your first draft as the beginning of the beginning. It is akin to a sculptor placing a block of granite on his or her studio's floor. The work of art, given the idea is well-formed and planned, is ready to take shape. There is much more to say about this, but for now, let this suffice.

Chariss K. Walker"Humanmade is simply an awesome writer's resource! I highly recommend their website to all authors wanting a broader audience. In fact, I was so impressed with their website that I added it to the bonus materials in my latest nonfiction, How to Find us on Facebook: An Essential Guide for Indie Authors."
