First Advice from My Peers

So I'm a newbie to screenwriting.
And I asked in my group what tips they might have for me.

One guy who shall not be named... said:
"Sit your ass down. Write. Don't look at it. Go to sleep.
Start fresh the next day. Repeat. Rinse."

OK. So I revised what he said.
But that is the gist of what he told me.

I asked him why I shouldn't look at what I wrote.
He said it's because you don't want to fall into Revision Hell.
Much better to have a Bad First Draft than a Ultra Perfect Scene all by itself.

I will heed his advice!
