Sometimes I have a hard time focusing on my writing because I'm thinking, "This is awful. This definitely sucks."
I decided that I needed to take the advice of letting myself write "crap." I tell myself that it is OK for now, I can go back and change it later. I can fix it. I just need to get the idea down, the emotion, the scene. I found that this at least helps me to move forward with my story instead of dwelling on a section that can't be fixed yet because I don't know where it was going anyway!
Do you fellow writers have a mantra you tell yourself as your writing to keep you focused enough to get the story out?
As always... Happy Writing!!!
