words that are speaking to me

"Every first draft is perfect, because all a first draft has to do is exist."

--- Jane Smiley


  1. What a great quote for your current thoughts on how you want to write this draft vs. your first YA draft. I look forward to hearing more about how the process to try to publish your first and to write your second unfold. I love that this is an encouraging nudge to just write!

  2. What a relief! I must say that even though I like to think I don't strive for "perfect", this does take some pressure off!


I {heart} comments. Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
