Hi, I've noticed two different mindsets when I am writing. The first I'll call flow writing(forgive my lack of proper terminology); this pertains to my actual work, not just writing drills. Basically I'll know what I want to write about and just write. The words come out like this. They just come out and there they are. In the other mindset, I'm forcing things. I struggle for the right words and sentence structures and it can take half an hour to get a paragraph out. I find that the first style produces better writing. The latter never receives praise from those I share my work with. Therefore I prefer the former.This is based on the philosophy that your true style comes out when you just 'let it go.' Let's call the first mindset A and the latter B to avoid confusion. Now, when I edit, sometimes it goes beyond changing a few words or correcting grammar. Rather I'm restructuring paragraphs, even pages. My question is this. For those of you who edit heavily, do you feel that doing so sacrifices your natural prose. Does it make your work look contrived or awkward? Or, which I'm hoping, does the flow and tone produced originally remain despite such adjustments? In other words, to what extent does A merge into B upon heavy editing? Perhaps I am oversimplifying things. Thanks for your responses.
