The Best Quote on Writing I’ve Ever Read
"The first draft of anything is shit." - Ernest Hemingway
Though I know this, this quote encourages me when I feel like what I'm writing is crap. The first draft is a mangled, jagged, soup of words. Handwritten, corrections, edits, and notes make the draft look like the unorganized notes of a scientist.
The important thing in the beginning is that I understand it.
The most important thing is that the reader understands it. If the reader does understand what's being conveyed, mission accomplished.
