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.
