Here’s a tip. Stop writing what is floating in your head as if it makes as much sense to us as it does to you, and try writing as if someone else is reading it.

I’d probably have to be sober to accomplish your writing tip. I can’t count the number of times I’ve woken up to see that the brilliant wild associations that I posted on my blog the night before now read like gibberish. It’s embarassing.

On the other hand, the gibberish often makes a great first draft, and often does have a few half-funny seeds of insight. Alcoholism is underrated.

Unless you enjoy seeing the whole ugly writing process, RSS is not the best medium for getting the most enjoyment out of this blog. My first drafts most often suck ape wind.
