Discussion on: What do you think of an #offthecuff tag for stories written spontaneously and without editing?

Honestly, every article I've ever written was "off the cuff". It's just the way I write, even in college (and I was a regular on the Dean's List). I'd write my essay, do a quick read-through to correct any obvious errors, and then go back and create the outline if it was required. On occasion, I'll write my headings first, and then the rest of the article.

I seriously even write most of my books that way. I just do a whole lot more editing in that scenario.

I need to be less thorough in my articles I guess. :)
