Don't worry about if it's good, in the right order, or in the right point of view. Just get the story out. Write it because you love your story. When you're done and have a beginning, middle, and end on paper, no matter how sloppy they are, then you have a choice. Is that good enough, you've told your story and now your done? Or do you want to see it published? Then begin the painful process of revising and editing. The work will be worth it if you want your story in print.(less)
