Jumping Off

In a year, my writing preferences have changed a ton. Time was, I hated revising. Now I love it. I crave the times I get to use ideas or opinions to make a project better, more interesting, more anything.

So writing first drafts is REALLY HARD.

Getting into a new characters head, turning off the inner-editor, all of that is so difficult because I want to make the scenes in my head as awesome as they look to me. And it's hard to do that when I want to focus on things I shouldn't be thinking about yet.

How do you turn off that inner voice? Do you?  Or is first-drafting the easy part for you?
