First Draft

First draft,

catch the idea, put it on the page.

But its not all there yet?

Doesn’t matter, you have a quota.

Just get it on the page, and get it out there.

Fuck editing, fuck censoring, it’s all out, all on the line.

Tomorrow is a big day,

in a bad way, maybe we just need to distract ourself.

First draft,

stream of consciousness,

no filter,

but also no direction.

Doesn’t matter,

quantity first.

Put it out there,

put it on the page!
