I use reaction riffs too much in my opinion, but only when I'm improvising to a progression or something instrumental. Otherwise I can just go off and learn new shapes and sounds to add to my repertoire and then those become reaction riffs. It's never-ending for me
When I write a solo it's a bit easier to analyze what I want it to sound like, but I don't intellectualize it, as long as it sounds right and I can physically do it, it's all good.

I have scales and basic theory down pretty well, so while I'm playing, I usually don't think of that. Usually I just listen to how it sounds more than anything else. Believe me, I realize how important theory is, but all that theory means absolutely nothing if it doesn't sound good, and you can make it sound good without theory (Although theory will definetely help). Other times I just totally zone out, and don't really think about what I'm doing until someone around me tells me it sounded cool. Then I spend half and hour trying to figure out what I did while I was zoning out.
