The first demand of writing productivity is to create the First Draft. One unproductive diversionary activity is to attempt to perfect your writing "too early." It is more efficient to keep writing and get the initial draft completed before editing a manuscript. Early editing can be demoralizing and derail writing momentum and flow. It is better to forge ahead and continue to add to the manuscript until the complete paper has been prepared. Only when the first draft is completed should the serious work of revision begin.
