This quote epitomizes my life right now, as I endeavor to tie up loose ends and just get this story out of me.
You have to allow yourself the liberty of writing poorly. You have to get the bulk of it done, and then you start to refine it. You have to put down less than marvelous material just to keep going to whatever you think the end is going to be — which may be something else altogether by the time you get there.
There will be many edits to come, but right now I just have to whip this beast into submission!
