Seth GODIN puts it like this:
Writer’s block isn’t hard to cure.
Just write poorly. Continue to write poorly, in public, until you can write better.
I believe that everyone should write in public. Get a blog. Or use Squidoo or Tumblr or a microblogging site. Use an alias if you like. Turn off comments, certainly–you don’t need more criticism, you need more writing. (from)
How do I put it?
- I don’t proof read my blog posts; I try to post a lot; but don’t proof read; this holds out for emails too;
- On the other hand, I do spell check, quite a lot, my clients’ web sites when I check them; I can spot mistakes quite easily;
- I like to be very careful important online transactions (like when buying a video camera); in such a case, I am paying lots of attention;
- On the other hand, I don’t check small amounts of money (let’s say, lower than 1 USD);
Error is good. :)
