Bad Ideas

The chapter I chose was “Good Writers Always Follow My Rules”

The author in this chapter is describing how many writers tend to get frustrated with rules that they follow that aren’t necessarily rules.The bad idea that is mentioned in this chapter is that while you’re writing you’re draft, never edit it while writing just keep going and wait until you’ve completed the draft.

The author says it’s a bad idea to edit before the draft is done because you need to have a plan, get all the research you need, write it from beginning to end, then once its finished revise it and move on.

The better idea is to just write and not to think about any mistakes that you might have made, you need to keep in mind that it’s just a draft and you should just focuse on the writing and not the mistakes.
