comment Standardizing capitalization within a bibliography or footnotes when your sources have used different standards
Consult your style guide. For example, the Publication manual of the APA (4th Edition) states: "Capitalize only the first word of the title and of the subtitle, if any, and any proper names; ...".

comment Are complex sentences uncommon or unwanted in English?
A sentence should be no longer than is required to contain the thought it expresses, but no shorter. (a restatement of Einstein's "everything should be as simple as possible, but not simpler.")

comment Is discovery or outline writing connected to personality type (e.g. MBTI)
@erikric neat, i'm one of those that think by speaking which is why i find it nearly impossible to edit after it has gone from now to then, but easy to just type what i'm thinking but unlike what that last part says i've at the best of times have many a paragraph sitting fully formed on my tongue just waiting to get captured.
