Writing Tip: Get To The End

Honestly this is something I don’t think gets said enough. Stuck on a hard scene? Write a summary or description of it for now. Not sure where things are going? Write whatever comes to your head. Let your brain take you wherever it decides to go. Just get to the end. You hear all the time that first drafts are supposed to suck, because they are. Because you can fill in those hard scenes later, you can rewrite the story a million times to make it better, but you can’t rewrite or fill in what doesn’t already exist. So, yes. Skip the hard parts for now. Don’t let them drag you down. Get to the end. There’s something so powerful about finishing a draft, even if its rudimentary. Get to the end.
