Seems mostly on point. I suppose I could use that nudge to focus on the illustrative (2) and metaphorical (3).

But I would modify their note about separating writing from editing (1). Their advice could be taken to mean that you are not allowed to edit when writing. However, it would be more useful to emphasize that you should not stop yourself from writing just because you think you have to edit. Especially in light of their "small burst" writing suggestion (6), one should recognize that you don't always have the next paragraph ready to go: while thinking about what to write next, there's nothing stopping you from reminding yourself about what you wrote prior, and correcting that darn misspelled word over there.

The writing as a whole can grow together while the author keeps up general momentum.
