Just something I've been thinking about (and thinking about putting over my desk, if I had one).

If your first draft sucks, remember that in early drafts of Lord of the Rings, Aragorn's nickname wasn't Strider... it was Trotter.

If your first draft really sucks, remember that in really early drafts of Lord of the Rings, the protagonist's name was Bingo Bolger-Baggins. (This is true.)

It'll be OK in revision.
