Brilliant garbage...

"It is perfectly okay to write garbage—as long as you edit brilliantly."

HELP! I'm a writer in an editor's brain. Let me out!

My problem is I read what I'm writing, as I'm writing it, and I can't seem to leave it alone to steep. It's a huge waste of time, because I'll just have to edit for for content after the composition draft is finished.

Yeah, it's hard to turn that internal editor off. I try to just put the words on the paper, and let them sit there for a while before I go back. It helps me increase my word count if I can just throw the words on the page first.
