Writing and cluelessness

I've been meaning to post up a bunch of thoughts on writing, and it seems that it would be better to do it in chunks rather than all at once. Otherwise, I don't see myself getting around to it at all!

Today's first installment is mainly about "different writing hats," with a little humor thrown in because I can't help myself.

There are different versions of "me" as a writer, and probably most people. These are different for a reason.

All of my writer aspects want you to understand what I'm saying, and as a reader I expect the same from you. If you're incoherent, sloppy, or make me work ridiculously hard to parse your sentences, I'm going to be annoyed. If it's fanfic, I'll also avoid reading it.
