    I write as much as possible, then cut cut cut... Usually start out with a skeletal frame of what all my paragraphs will be and random notes for each one, then fill it in. The problem is... I could keep writing stuff forever, so it's good to have a deadline or page limit so I'll stop ad cut...Finally I move paragraphs around, do a read through, print it out, read it allowed and edit by hand. Reading out loud and hand editing or editing on a very large monitor offer good benefits for polishing. It's also good to let the writing sit for a few days or a week without looking at it, then come back for edits that I never saw before.

    I just start writing. When I'm done, I re-read for grammar, flow, and spelling, then I submit.

    ENTP - The Visionaries

    Language and writing to me is something fluid and dynamic, not to be confined by structure but to be aided by it. When I write, I have a general idea in my head which unravels itself in a semi-orderly fashion midway through. So I'll start with the first sentence (usually either leading up to the main idea or the main idea), and from there diverge into various descriptions, explanations and examples which all tie into my main idea. The organization of these is mostly whatever comes to me as I'm writing, whatever structure best suits the words I'm using. It's the words and sentences that are important, and the structure should (in my opinion) be used to emphasize the words, not the other way around.

    I do sometimes edit my writing, but not usually very thoroughly. I might change a few words or phrases, move one sentence to a different location, or very rarely move an entire paragraph. Mostly I can get away with writing an entire paper from to back without editing or planning it, and I always get an A. It's just how my brain works.

    I think ENTP writers like other ENTP writers, one of the great ENTP writers is Chuck Palaniuk and I guess my writing style is similar to his. Like some of the other guys, I don't really plan it out on paper on a document, but in my head quite intensively. But I hate writing on paper cause I re-write ALL THE TIME.

    Have you guys seen this blog?

    About ENTPs, she writes:

    ENTP writers enjoy the planning stage. They may come up with many good ideas quickly. Often skilled at detecting patterns and envisioning outcomes, they trust their insight and resist prescribed methods. The writing process itself may prove tedious to them, but if they persevere, their work is often thorough and multifaceted.The ENTP personality type is one of 16 identified by the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, a popular psychometric instrument used to determine how people prefer to gather information and make decisions. The initials ENTP indicate the following:
    E: Extraversion preferred to introversion
    ENTPs get their energy from people and activity in their external world. Spending time alone can leave them listless and bored. They enjoy interacting with a large group of friends and acquaintances. They generally act before reflecting.

    N: iNtuition preferred to sensation
    ENTPs are abstract thinkers, placing more trust in flashes of insight than in experience. They’re less interested in sensory data than in the patterns perceived by the unconscious mind. ENTPs tend to be intellectually restless—they want to change the world.

    T: Thinking preferred to feeling
    ENTPs prefer to use their thinking function when making decisions. They place more emphasis on the rule of logic than on the effect that actions have on people. They tend to be skeptical in evaluating ideas, whether their own or someone else’s.

    P: Perception preferred to judgment
    ENTPs like to keep their options open. They enjoy beginning new projects and exploring opportunities as they arise. ENTPs think in terms of possibilities rather than likelihoods.

    Are you an ENTP writer? If so, the following information may give you some insight into how temperament influences your writing style. Use these insights to help you play to your strengths and compensate for your natural blind spots.
    Writing Process of the ENTP
    ENTPs may approach a writing project in the following ways:

    • Are rarely at a loss for ideas. While many people struggle to find a topic, ENTP writers may have difficulty limiting themselves to just one. You may enjoy exploring controversial subjects or devising clever solutions to problems. Have fun playing with different possibilities, and see where they lead you.
    • Can benefit from collaborative writing projects. Chances are, you prefer an active, high-energy environment. You may enjoy discussing and debating your ideas with others. You will probably assert your individuality even within the group. If someone else is leading the project, be careful that your natural tendency to ignore authority doesn’t undermine the team. If you maintain goodwill, you’ll stand a better chance of convincing someone else to do the actual writing.
    • May do well to compose an article, essay, or story by speaking into a voice recorder. If the thought of transcribing the recording sounds unbearably tedious to you, consider paying (or persuading) someone else to do it. To sustain your enthusiasm, gather visual elements to use in the piece. Devise your own strategies to make the writing process more interesting.
    • Are motivated by a desire to innovate. They tend to seek a unique approach even to ordinary topics. Conversely, they tend to be good at making complex subjects clear and interesting. Stay focused, and let your desire to prove your competence and ingenuity drive you forward until the project is complete.

    Potential Blind Spots of the ENTP
    ENTPs may experience the following pitfalls:

    • Generally enjoy brainstorming but may not feel motivated to write until they feel the pressure of a deadline. To avoid a time crunch at the end of the project, set milestones along the way. Make your best guess of how long each step should take, then double it. Schedule enough time to take breaks so you can consider new possibilities. To stay energized, try working in a variety of settings.
    • Often excel at satire, and humor can liven up their work. Make sure your tone is appropriate for the piece, however, and for the audience. You may find it helpful to include a personal story or two, rather than relying on cold logic alone to make your point.
    • Tend to grasp the big picture and to focus on the future. Ensure that your work contains enough background material and concrete detail. To avoid tangents or a cursory treatment of the subject, keep the central thesis or purpose of the project in mind while writing. Solicit feedback from someone whose competence you trust.

    Remember, there’s no right or wrong approach to writing. Each individual is unique, so don’t let generalities limit you. Do what works best for you.

    Theoretically, ENTP's not wanting to plan makes sense, but I'm surprised at all the comments of the ease and flow without need for structure. Many of you seem to write so smoothly. I write in a notebook sometimes to keep my brain from exploding; I wouldn't expect a reader to be able to follow it. More like scribbles or A,B,C points than a formal outline, I make a structure after the fire hose brain explosion (when I need to communicate or publish). I don't mean everything, but even a PerC post may get edited or a paragraph switched. What is in my head is usually more like a diagram or spokes of a wheel; I have to get it out, order it, and cut it, after I have it where I can see the whole thing and read it over.

    The OP shows a writing example. According to uclassify.com which has MBTI writing classifiers. The text is INTJ. I write a blog. Most of the posts are INTP. I am assuredly ENTP. I suspect that we use Ti when writing which leads to the INTP classification. I'm trying to figure out how we'd use Ne when writing. I also suspect that the classifiers would have trouble recognizing Ne text. Thoughts?

    I'm a good starter but a bad finisher. That pretty much sums up my relation to writing.
    I like to throw in twists with regards to whatever I'm writing. I don't like to be predictable.
    I need to have fun with the process.
