Keeping me honest

Okay, I need 20 pages by the end of tomorrow. I need to send a 20 page draft to my chair by tomorrow night. I am currently on the end of page 7. It's crap, but Don Murray always told me to just "let it be shit," so that's what I'm doing. I'm going to get 20 pages down then spend the week revising. I'm just telling you all this so that I'm responsible to more people for getting my work done this weekend because I need all the motivation I can get. Mostly, I just want to sink and sink and sink (read: watch a marathon session of The Sopranos).

I'll let you know how it goes.

Keep reading/writing/swimming, all.

Good luck, Abby! "Let it be shit" is probably the best soundest writing advice I've heard in awhile, by the way. It's the only way to go about the first draft of anything.
