Write first. Edit second

Thomas Kemeny:

I used to have trouble doing long copy because I’d get stuck in the structure of it, trying to land the ad perfectly from the very beginning. Logic and order come more in the editing than the writing. Treat long copy like a piece of documentary footage; you gather a bunch of content before you chop it together.

Write first. Edit second. Don’t let perfectionism get in the way.
