The hater in your head is NOT invited to speak while you’re writing your first draft.
As Dr. Evil would say… “ZIP IT!”
Don’t listen to the garbage your inner critic says in the early stages of your work.
Getting it done is way more important than having it perfect. So silence the inner beast and do it imperfectly and scared.
Anytime it pipes up just tell it, “I really appreciate advice. But I’m not ready yet – I’ll let you know when I need you.” Send it nicely on its way.
And on the last final rounds of edits you may allow it to voice its opinion again- to give you helpful advice only!
