No permission to write badly

Last year, I wrote: "Give yourself permission to write badly and you will surprise yourself."

This is still true in 2011. But I don't just write something for the sake of the wordcount. At the end of the month, I want a first draft I can work with. That's why I'm trying to cut the adverbs and most of the adjectives and every line I know is superfluous.

This year, I'm using backspace and delete.
