Paragraphs? OK, you asked for it. Next time, maybe.

I write some (most) of this when the medication is wearing on or wearing off. That half-hour is like truth serum, since it turns off (inhibits) my higher function restraints (such as self-conscious stage fright) first. That freedom, though liberating, is transient and I have to get it all down before I conk out or it's lost forever.

I have become conditioned to be opportunistic about brainstorming when writer's block is medicated out of the way. Is it really cheating to use such a crutch?

Structure is sacrificed before content. Us engineers always gather components before we begin assembly. While we CAN stick to original designs, we donít think of ourselves as engineers unless we can change something for the better, so engineering a response leaves artistic structure naturally and elastically last in favor of quality content worth the art. Grammatical paragraph structure begs for even more content than I have time for. I'll have to compose and edit in Word instead of this tiny little box. Paragraphs could add 24 hours to my turnaround time if their incorporation exceeds my 2x half-hours of useful fluent writing and actually contribute little additional value. On second thought, paragraphs do make re-reading more efficient.

If caught writing again medicated in that particular half-hour so expositional for me, I might forget superficial structure again, though I don't seem to be otherwise embarrassed yet by what I write while nearly unconscious. Could happen again, forgive me now.
