Tao of first drafts

  • First, write from the heart, then edit with the head.
  • Lao Tzu said, “Do without ado.” (Get out of the way of the process.)
  • Don’t concentrate on your writing. Tell the story. That is, one scene at a time, focus on the characters and their situation.
  • Stories are greater than words because people and events are greater than words. Therefore, don’t focus on the words. FEEL the story and let the words happen.
