For Playwrights - Theatre Writing Do's and Dont's

Do Silence Your Inner Critic While You are Writing: This is the voice that continually shouts in the background, or quietly whispers in your ear, that you are a failure and that you should give it up and be happy with your day job.

Don't Silence Your Inner Editor: This is the constructive voice in your head that will encourage you to work on that scene a little more, cut that monologue to get to the climax faster, work on that part that sounds too much like the playwright talking to the audience, etc.
