clean sheet of paper is lying in front of
you, and you have to fill it up. Suddenly,
your mind may seem as blank as the paper.
What can you do to set your pen in motion?
The answer is simple: Don’t be caught in the
perfection trap. That is, if you can
convince yourself that the first draft isn’t
your best writing and can be made more effective
with additional thought and some revision,
then it will be easier to get started. When
starting, don’t worry about what the reader
will think about what you have written. Make
writing as easy for you as you can by not
being concerned with how good the first draft
is. There will be time for revising and polishing
any ideas you want to pursue later.
