Elizabeth Pina's curator insight, October 17, 2013 7:45 PM

I rescooped this from my scoop it page. The original article comes from wiseinkblog.com. It mentions things that have already been said by famous authors, for example "the first draft of everything is shit" by Ernest Hemmingway. It also has other quotes that talk about not forcing your writing, which I found interesting because I know that many college students do that; I may or may not be guilty of procrastination myself. :)
