Maybe writing will finally slow me down, I sure hope one day I can match some of the other writers skills. I don't think I'm doing too bad on my first story since I have never done any creative writing before.

I do stop and make changes, sometimes coming back later to make changes.
I think it's a curse. LOL

I was curious about this, because I haven't noticed a lot of spelling or grammar errors in your writing (I'm probably the worst proof reader of all time- so that's not saying a lot). I couldn't write in the browser, because I need Word to catch my spelling errors, and I prefer the platform.
I write very, very stream-of-consciousness. In fact, most of my contributions to Naomi were written in the browser window and posted. Do I reread and wish that I had done a detail here and there slightly different? Maybe, but that's true no matter how many times I revise it. I see the movie in my head and I write it as descriptively as possible, and it seems to work.
I'm currently writing a story based on the movie "BIG" although obviously it is the exact opposite. My problem is that I'll write a beginning of a story, but I tend to write in big chunks. It is like cleaning, I'll get a hair up my butt and write a few thousand words, but then hold off for the next week and not write a damn thing. Stories die, because I lose touch with the character.
