The beautiful part of writing: you don't have to get it right the first time unlike, say, brain surgery. - Robert Cormier 

I have to remind myself of this again and again as I'm working on my novel; my tendency has always been to over-edit as I write the first draft.

Feel free to download and print this Robert Cormier quote to post in your home, office, classroom or library!
