Internal Editor

I may have figured out why I can't seem to turn off that infernal internal editor who creeps up on me every time I sit down to write. I should have realized it before. It's work that won't let me write.

Every time I email or work on a report I'm constantly editing. I go back and change the way I worded that last sentence or restructure that last paragraph so that I don't offend anyone who might happen to read it. And I find myself doing the same thing when I'm writing.

How do I make it stop? Aside from quitting my job and staying home to write full time (which I can't afford to do) I haven't figured it out yet. But I'll keep working on it. Eventually the editor has to sleep right?
