OPML Editor Makes A Surpisingly Fun Writing Tool

As a writing tool, the OPML editor can actually be quite liberating. You don't have to use it to make traditional outlines. You can use it to produce playful and unexpected writing.

Start out writing anything at all in one node, then use bits and pieces of that node to seed other nodes. Then, add randomly to these seed nodes. Further, you can even rearrange the nodes and bits and pieces of language in them.

Do it all at light speed. See what develops.
