The word "smex" makes me want to stab my eyes out. Not sure why, because I'm fine with "teh sex". But "smex" makes me want to remove someone's gonads.
When you write, do you just keep going and then pull out your inner editor or do you edit as you write?
Personally, I tend to lean toward the second one, but occasionally I slip into the first. I obsessively perfect each sentence until I like it. I do go through and reread everything as a whole as well, but I wonder if I'm the only person who, as they're writing, constantly writes bad, random sentences and then has to go back and fix them.
