The fourth tip that I wanted to share with you all is a simple, but useful tip when writing that first draft.
‘Don’t fuss over the details. Stopping to figure out the exact size of bullet needed for a certain gun can put a dampener on creativity and hinder your flow. Keep writing, jot a note to remind you to research at a later date, and get that first draft down. Editing is called editing for a reason.’
This tip stems from experience. I have pages of scribbles in my notebook reminding me to find out specific, factual information that I don’t know off the top of my head. I prefer not to dwell on the details until the editing stage, otherwise I switch from the creative to the logical side of my brain and lose my train of thought.
