I'm not sure I completely agree, but you can definitely get better at your craft with practice, and revision.

comment How to vary writing style?
I like this, though I caution you on writing too much as you speak. It will read funny as well. There's a balance needed.

Interesting. What do you do during the 2 minutes? Is there a timer involved?

I often go to a Starbucks/Borders/B&N, get a cup of coffee, sometimes use headphones, but just be around white noise of people and then go heads down.

I think this is great. Build a habit and structure. I tend to write after lunch for my job. Get admin stuff done early, write in the afternoon.

The schedule prevents me from getting timely feedback from others. Also, it's a burden on others, so I was hoping for other ideas. The self recording is interesting.

Nice idea, I'll try this. I do a podcast as well, so I "re-read" this on a teleprompter twice (practice/live) and that has helped.
