If I were going to pick one skill to master as a writer first, it would be how to get the words down even when you don’t think you’re good enough, you’re not in the mood, you don’t deserve it, etc.

If I were going to pick two, it would be that one and writing quickly.

Then again, my theory is always to burn through mistakes as quickly as possible.
