One of my goals was to write for at least an hour per day on my new project. This proved to be harder than it seems.

Then I came across this blog post from one of the fellow Campaigners. It helped me remember that my first draft doesn't need to be perfect. No one else has to see it. As long as I keep at it and keep working, it will come together in the end. And then I can come back and cut out that superfluous scene where they're watching a movie, right? :)
As long as I remember to edit the life out of it before I start sending it out to my poor crit partners. *innocent whistling*
We all have those days when it's hard to get the words out. But on a first draft, it helps to turn off the perfectionist inside. Let's just hope I can keep it up.
What do you do when you run into writer's block? How hard do you try to polish the first draft? Do you edit while you write? Or revise everything later?
