Don’t Upload the 1st Draft

As for the First Draft… If you’re a first-time creator who’s producing your first project, unless you’ve been touched by the Divine or a grandchild of the great Andrei Tarkovsky, don’t publish your first draft on the internet for the world to see.

The "C." stands for "Christopher."
