“Don’t get it right, get it written.”
James Thurber’s advice still sticks in my mind, years after I first heard it. It’s an elegant turn of phrase, and it is a perfect way to motivate yourself through lulls in writing on a project.
Only when it’s written can you go back and make it right. And it’s much easier to see the woods for the trees when you have a full script or manuscript.
But everything after the quote is redundant, all you need is to let that mantra stay with you every time you are writing.
