I experienced a sort of "knot" to unravel in reading "encrypt" as a word choice, insofar as it would seem to me writing is decrypting non-linear, thoughts, emotions and putting them in linear, even digital form.





Now, with second and third thoughts, perhaps writers do encrypt until, like now, their meaning is chewed, exchanged, and possibly decrypted -- whatever...





If, at any time, you find the sheer process of tap-a-tapping the keys is becoming cumbersome, bothersome, or troublesome, a writer can speak their thoughts.





Besides a writer, I'm a freelance writer's assistant, i.e., in my work I transcribe the spoken word - more at http://www.VerbatimIT.com

I think (and I'm guessing here, since it's been a little while and my blogs tend to be fairly stream of consciousness) that my use of "encrypt" had to do with the mechanical act of entering the writing into a computer that would save it in some form that might or might not be recognizable, were the raw data file to be examined.

I like your thought about decrypting better, though, since it often feels like that's what I'm doing when I try to puzzle out the way a story is flowing and what naturally happens next.
