So. You think you have to get it right, straight out of your fingertips? Well, I am here to tell you, it just ain't so.
Yes, my grammar teacher would love me today. The fact is, I am feeling rather frothy. I mean, in order to get words on the page, we have to allow ourselves to be imperfect. For some people that is an impossibility. They either, A. don't have the time to go back and edit, or B. don't want to ever write anything that just isn't the best they can make it from the get go.
I am changing my methodology, though, as I am one of the above mentioned, and no, I am not saying which.
I am allowing myself the freedom to write ick on the first draft. I think truly it is okay, because who is gonna see it anyway?? No ONE! just me. So if I say it is okay to write garbage on the first round, to get the dang story out, then it IS okay.
I feel much better. I feel like this song :
Free to be Me
