My current writing process


I’m curious to see how my writing process will evolve over time, so I decided to write this post to capture a snapshot of my current writing process.

Step 1

Flesh out the sections using Org mode headings.

Step 2

Fill in sections using bullet points, which contain the general gist of what I want to say.

Step 3

Elaborate on these bullet points by figuratively barfing on the page with the hopes that whatever comes out resembles a well structured, english sentence.

Step 4

Clean up the disgorge.

Step 5

Go away and do something else.

Step 6

Come back and scrape away the crusty parts that haven’t stuck to the page.

Step n

Repeat Step 3 through 6.
