What I’ve learned about songwriting:

Just get something down on paper. Doesn’t matter how shitty it is. It’s just the scaffold for what you’re really going to write. One by one you’ll erase all the crap words and ideas and replace them with gems.

Applied to design:

How often have I stared at a blank screen? Just get something up there. Doesn’t matter how shitty it is. It’s just the scaffold for what comes next.
