Who of us hasn't seen Finding Forrester? But that was years ago and I glazed over this part. There are two pearls in this clam. One, write now, fix it later. The second is what I have been trying recently that, while it hasn't turned beast mode back on, has gotten me at least typing.
I copy someone's work every morning. I have my own google doc where I copy a page from good writers. Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Jane Austin, and Kafka have all been blatantly copied. I figured that if I want to write something good, then I need to write something good.
It's like lifting weights. If you want to lift heavy, you have to lift heavy. I haven't seen a drastic improvement in my writing. But I can grind out a bunch of words by getting my fingers "punching" early in the morning before everyone is up.
