    ... And this is why that one table leg is wonky.

    Yup, I prefer to dive right into things and skip introductions, instructions, all all those beginning "in" words. My writing is the same way, but twice a week I am chained to a chair and forced to edit my work into something resembling the English language.

    Oooh... a person who knows to plant his ass in the chair.

    Funny enough, sometimes I like editing over writing... I'm insane.

    Welcome. Maybe I should get some chains. That way, I'll actually get some editing done. I love writing. I tolerate editing.
