They suck. But they don’t have to rot in a drawer or on a computer forever. They can get better. With time and work, they can become a sparkling story.
First drafts are first drafts for a reason.
Don’t stress about being perfect the first time around. Or even the tenth.
You don’t have to get it right on your first try. Unlike other things in life.
So write your first draft.
Put it aside.
Take your time.
Then come back to your initial draft.
Be ready to suffer.
Because you’re going to suffer.
Also, don’t put it aside and never come back either.
Your story deserves better.
You deserve better.
