#TALKTIPS DAY 08: WRITE IT LIKE YOU SAY IT

I recall this tip from that one public speaking class I had in college. I'm not entirely sure, but I think I may have adopted this as my overall writing style, even when I'm not writing a talk. I type exactly what plays in my mind. :D

The idea is to not get hung-up on formal writing technique, to let everything flow nice and naturally. I find it helps keep things moving along when you need to get things out of your head. We can always clean things up in steps down the road, as long as we've given ourselves a reasonable amount of time to write the talk in. None of this night-before business, OK!
