Iterate, then evaluate

Resist the temptation to edit while you write. Focus on getting the words down on paper or on screen. Editing while you write is like tasting the batter and criticizing it for not being baked. You can’t realistically determine the strength of what you’ve written until it’s out of the oven. Taste it, then adjust the recipe for the next round.
