Writing off the cuff

Writing on reading Sula
Writing on reading Sula

I have found recently that writing off the cuff is not as easy as it once was. My mind was not complicated earlier by words like plot, structure, pace, POV…

Nor is reading as easy. Because though I immensely enjoyed reading “Sula” by Toni Morrison, I was analyzing it at the same time…how did she do this or that or another?

How about you? Do you think learning more on how to write limits your spontaneity in some way?

    I don’t know if it kills my spontaneity, but it does hinder how much I can just enjoy a book. Certainly not like I used to, that’s for sure. Now I’m picking everything I can apart.

    Yes, darc, I know the feeling. I try not to do it most times.
