Don't insist on the first draft being good. That will paralyse you forever. In fact, insist on the first draft being as rough as a bear's arse. Insist on it being an incoherent fucking mess. It's not supposed to be good. It's supposed to be *outside of you.* The first victory is hard but simple: get it outside of your head and down on a page. Right now, you're constipated by expectation. Okay, you probably don't want me to continue with that metaphor. But just get the ideas out of you and on a page where you can see them, in broken sentences and stick figures if you like. Fix it later, once it's outside of your head where you can see it.(less)
Warren Ellis No idea. I got that bastard out of my head more than a dozen years ago, and I'm never letting him back in. He shits everywhere.

“Did you ever want to set someone's head on fire, just to see what it looked like? Did you ever stand in the street and think to yourself, I could make that nun go blind just by giving her a kiss? Did you ever lay out plans for stitching babies and stray cats into a Perfect New Human? Did you ever stand naked surrounded by people who want your gleaming sperm, squirting frankincense, soma and testosterone from every pore? If so, then you're the bastard who stole my drugs Friday night. And I'll find you. Oh, yes.”
Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 5: Lonely City

“By four o'clock, I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.”
Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan, Vol. 3: Year of the Bastard

“Drinking is fun! It makes me feel horrible and sexy!”
Warren Ellis
