Write your first draft with your heart. Re-write with your head.

From the movie Finding Forrester.

Where's Sean Connery when you need him, eh?

I'm not that good at using my head when I write. Generally, I favour the three middle fingers on each hand. And you'd need such a large keyboard...

Okay, I admit it. I'm just a teensy bit hysterical.

Put it down to lack of sleep.

I think I always, always write with my heart.

But as an editor, I have quite a different philosophy.

Even with my own work.
