The problem with the way I write is often when I am doing my first shitty draft, I am cringing as I write it. Some stuff will fly out of my fingers at rapid speed and then I’ll start to slow down as I write thinking “oh, no no no this is ..what the HELL”.
I’ll write it all down anyway, shaking my head and when it comes time to review it I end up ditching more than half what I wrote. It’s never what I mean to say, it doesn’t come out properly!
I guess that means I need to do some more reading. Zinsser and otherwise.
