I am perpetually in editor-mode. This is one of my flaws; one that holds me back considerably when I am writing. And the reason is that I spend far more time re-reading what I have written rather than just blurting all my thoughts down on paper (screen?) as they come to me. All the experts say just dump it all out at once; you can always go back and re-read it again later on.

When I feel writer’s block I go to my files, find an idea, plant a seed and watch it grow.
One way I have found to write effectively, is to write it all out and then edit what you’ve written. When I write, I don’t stop
