I write. Then rewrite. Even if it is barely readable nonsense there are two things you can guarantee. First, it is better quality than George Bush Junior could manage when he was running the free world (note to Americans - everyone else just smiled or acknowledged the sarcasm). Secondly, you can beat even random words on a page into submission to give you a start of an idea or at least a direction. Blank pages stare back into you, stealing your soul. Or not.
