The speaker also mentions their work on a book and the process of adding data and research to their ideas and outlines. They talk about the benefits of being an oversharing online for many years, as it allows them to have a diary-like collection of snippets and memories to use in their writing.

Realizing that stream of consciousness is crucial in writing.
