“Get it down. Take chances. It may be bad, but it’s the only way you can do anything really good.”
I really needed to see this. I need to become comfortable with the idea that nothing happens unless you take a chance. Of course I understand it in theory. But it’s hard to make myself sit down and write despite the fact that what I write may be terrible. And it’s OK if it’s terrible because all writers write crap sometimes, but they can turn that crap into gold with hard work and perseverance.
You can’t create gold without creating some crap first. So I really need to get over myself, take a chance, write something bad, and turn it into good.
