There is the advice that says, "turn off the editor inside, and write your story." Doing so will help writers who suffer from writer's block and who are frozen in the first sentence, tweaking it, changing a word and not going beyond the first sentence. This advice had helped me slog through a phase where I couldn't go beyond the first sentence or first paragraph. I reserved my editorial critique for the second draft. Sure, shut that editor out for the first draft, but I'm curious if you invite someone else in your writer's mind. Do you get into character and write through the chosen POV character's eyes? I haven't done this process yet. What I do now is write as the author and only as the author. I'm curious if any of you fellow writers get into character while you write. Character would not be limited to first-person; character can also be third-person.
