    This is something I really have to drive deep into my gooey lumpy brain. I hate how I spend so much time and only end up writing a maximum of 1500 words. :( Then go back and reread and hate myself for the mistakes.

    Sadly and regretfully, I've wasted so many years being scared of the white sheet of death.

    Amazing advice... I was shocked to read that this is a rough draft... This doesn't look like a rough draft at least to me... And thanks a lot for the advice... 👍🏼
    Awesome advice. The publishing industry is always changing and it is important to stay up-to-date with it. Plus, reading and analyzing other authors in your genre will really help with success.

    It's until later that you realize how horrible your drafts are!
