There’s an article or post somewhere out there about continuous writing, or something like that. I can’t find it, just right now when I finally have the technology to do something like it! I’ll edit this post when I finally get it.
Update: It turns out that the term is “continuous publishing”, which makes a lot of sense now that I think about it. The post is here.
By reducing the importance of the moment where a piece is first publish, we can work on more substantial writing that improves over time, like a Wikipedia article. But it doesn’t have to take the form of Wikipedia: it could be an essay, a short story, or field notes filled with observations.
It’s permitting yourself to think out loud.
