Writing Right Right Now

It isn’t right to write, “It isn’t right to write poorly”. At least right now.

I couldn’t resist writing that, even if it wasn’t right, but let’s get right to the point: the accidental homonym is obstrusive writing. It distracts, by making the reader notice the medium instead of the message.

Maybe later I’ll count the meta-levels, but I’m going to up it a notch, even though that means you’ll have to go through this twice to understand it, like watching the movie Inception about manipulating a dream within a dream within a dream. It actually was right for me write those first two sentences (would you like me to repeat them in quotes here? No? Please put down your tomato) because here, the medium *is* the message.

Or is it?
