One Word...

It has been a long time since I posted...owe cliff mims a PD meme (it's coming cliff) but as I was going through my Diigo drafts I came across this goody...thought it about summed it up
    the real purpose of this exercise is to alleviate
    our natural tendency to edit everything—and learn
    to flow.

    an analogy would be a film camera:
    when a film is shot, the camera just rolls and captures
    everything—good and bad. when all the shooting is
    complete, the raw film is edited into a cohesive piece.

    the camera operator doesn't keep stopping the camera and
    rewinding and editing on-the-fly—the camera just rolls.
    if it were to stop, some of the best performances
    and spontaneous moments might be missed.

    be the camera. well, that's a stupid saying, but
    you get the idea. in writing—just flow. go back later
    and edit.

    Go write.

Leaving for NECC in a few hours....Guess it is time for me to get back at it!
