For the first draft (at least), turn your Creative Mind ON and your Critical Mind OFF. Keep the words/story flowing.
Your Creative Mind is concerned with the story, the characters, the settings, and the imaginative expression of each of these elements. While words eventually need to be honed and shaped into a professional-quality suitable for sharing with readers, for the first draft, if not several subsequent drafts as well, constant critiquing of the exact language and word choice can stifle the flow and development of the story.
In the early drafting stages, resist the temptation to go back and tweak word choice and the specific way that ideas are expressed in words. This temptation can easily become an obsessive trap as with the character Joseph Grand in Albert Camus’ The Plague, who endlessly rewrites the opening sentence to his book, never getting beyond a perfectionistic obsession with getting the words ‘right’.
