    My inner editor kicks in when I'm typing onto the screen. This is fatal for the outline and first draft, so like several others here I write those longhand in a series of notebooks. The fact that my handwriting is terrible is a plus -- I have the freedom to write a horrible first draft without worrying about someone else reading it. On subsequent drafts, I type onto the computer and therefore invite the inner editor to fix the first draft issues.

    As always, do what works for you.
