“It’s okay to write crap. Just don’t try publishing it while it’s still crap. – S.M. Blooding
“Don’t look back until you’ve written an entire draft, just begin each day from the last sentence you wrote the preceding day. This prevents those cringing feelings, and means that you have a substantial body of work before you get down to the real work which is all in…the edit.” – Will Self
“When in doubt, take it out.” – Barbara DaCosta
“I’m not a very good writer, but I’m an excellent rewriter.” – James Michener
“If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it.” – Elmore Leonard
