I’ll let myself write the wrong thing, the right thing, the thing too tangled to distinguish as either until later. I’ll let myself write something that fails if I need to, so that I can transform it later into something which succeeds. Today I’ll let myself write badly, if that’s how the words are coming out. Because bad words are better than no words. And because without letting myself write badly, I cannot let myself write at all. — “On Getting Things Wrong,” by Leila Austin
