A lot of people have trouble writing first drafts quickly because they think that they’re supposed to be able to produce elegant sentences right off the bat. Instead of using their first draft as a chance to just get their ideas onto the page, they try to make each sentence perfect. If they type a word or phrase and it doesn’t feel right, they’ll stop to think of alternatives until they come up with something that they’re happy with. Although there isn’t anything wrong with this approach, it can be mentally draining. Realizing that it has taken you an hour to write just one paragraph also doesn’t make you feel great about what the rest of the writing process will be like.
