Passionate Editing

There's a quotation by HG Wells that I've come to enjoy that goes "No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft." That assumes quite a bit - that whatever you're editing qualifies as a draft.

I've noticed something about other folks' blogs - many of them are written with at least a bit of flair, and there's evidence of editing. Lots of editing.

That's pretty much the way that I write, blog or otherwise. Since I never learned how to type - it's a fast hunt-and-peck - I tend to type at a feverish pace, and go back after I've completed a section or paragraph to see what I've mistyped. Or turned into mush with my random thoughts. Like just then; I'll likely go back and fix that crap.

Or not.
