I have personally found out that when you write intending to be read by others, you tend to stumble at that final stage of "critically revising" the raw text.

I still tend to believe that the best therapy is writing like no one is reading.

The moment you expect someone to read, you're more inclined to worry about what that someone would think of you rather than keep the memory of what you write as raw as possible.

Is it just me who thinks so?
