"Write your first draft with your heart"

"Write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is to write, not think."
Citat från filmen Finding Forrester, hittat i amerikanska författaren Diane Chamberlaines blogg.
Hon skriver om hur hon gör sitt första utkast till en roman:
"I know many writers who polish as they go, trying to make that first draft fit for publication right from the start. Some of them succeed at it, too, but I'm with Forrester. My first draft is always written with my heart. It's messy, full of blank spaces, half sentences, and is very short on detail, but it has plenty of emotion and always contains the central thread of the story."
