it’s supposed to be, at least for the first draft. Think about any writing you’ve done and looked back at, some good, some mediocre and some awful. Welcome to the club…that’s the game we play here and those situations are as rudimentary to it as fumbles in football or errors in baseball.
Need more? How about when they show those goofs at the end of a funny movie during the credits. Did they chuck it all in and decide they’re terrible at movie making? No, they laughed about it, redid it – and still had the gumption to leave it in the movie.
Let’s think that way in our writing – garbage is inevitable, fix it, laugh and learn, onto the next chapter.
Now go fire it up.
