Iâ€™ve written about this beforeâ€”I find I do my best writing stream of consciousâ€”when I just write and donâ€™t stop to think and outline what Iâ€™m trying to get across. My best drafts are my first drafts. But thereâ€™s a problem inherent in that. Every great writer has an editor. I canâ€™t just let my fingers loose and toss out pages of a thesis paper in one go like I used to.
Thereâ€™s a next level Iâ€™m missing. I want to do better. I know I can do better, but I need to get beyond the first draft.
