Here’s what I have to say

But MJ says it much better

As writers, we’re supposed to suck. It’s that simple. We can’t make ourselves worry about making the best story out there from the start. We have to work and work and work and work and work. Yes. There are many of us who are talented writers, and our first drafts make really good first drafts. People smile at how good our first draft is, because they feel captivated by our stories, but it still sucks. By the time we’ve edited a few times, our stories become something better than we could have ever imagined.
