When to start over on your novel

It’s ok to start over.

Revision is envisioning again.

If your first draft is shit it’s much quicker to rewrite from scratch than to edit.

Writing is rewriting, but editing a bad draft is an exercise in futility — like trying to trim sideburns.

You can’t polish a turd.

Let it all go and start again.

It’s ok to burn all of your bridges so long as you’re prepared to walk through fire to get what you want.
