good column sir. i write in spurts really. i'll go weeks without nary a word and then i can't quit for days on end till it all gets out. weird i know. but i found that's better than forcing it. i also tend to write on little scraps of paper, and since i know this, i carry around a little notebook so they stay organized. works better and makes it harder to loose. plus it's the same little note book a lot of guys in my field use for work...so when i'm jotting down ideas i look like i'm actually working. it's the notebook that gives as well as receives! and i like that!
