where the writers are
Oh, my. My OCD is showing.

I've always been a dedicated revisionist. And it's usually a good thing. Because of my tendency to overanalyze, repeat myself, and state the obvious, my writing process usually takes on water as it goes along--becoming edemic--sinking the verbal ship with extra weight and making the result listless and bloated. I often--in all seriousnness and embarassment--end up cutting several thousand words from something. Whether it be my master's thesis or a story about my dog. So revising is really like throwing out a life jacket to someone clearly in danger; it's just the humane thing to do.

But, dang. I'm not blog or tech-savvy enough to have known--before this weekend--that all of my blog "updates" (revisions) are probably going out to the RSS people each and every time I make them. And it's just hideously awful for me to think about. Clogging up your email with my one word changes, or revision that came about while bored and waiting for a car repair.
So henceforth, all revisions will be done before posting.

And, of course, I'm sorry that I subjected anyone to the clear signs of my creative OCD.

Well, Leslie, in these days

Well, Leslie, in these days of complete inundation with acronyms, I tentatively muse that OCD could now have multiple meanings BUT I intended it to refer to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.   (My flippant use of acronyms perhaps should be reigned in a bit.  I think a revision is in order!  Haha)

Gracie..

Thanks Amy,

You saved my bacon as I fall amongst the many that know little about what surrounds them. Still I admire your jovial freedom within. To this no doubt you would say it is endemic...

Warm Regards

Leslie
