Full Disclosure: I Edit

I have said (to people who've met me) that I am more of a storyframer than a storywriter. I can see what's lacking or superfluous in a framework, but I'm not generally the story creator or originator. I am a thread finder, a beat meter. I see patterns and paths, consequences, trajectories. I sense rhythm. This is what makes me a good editor. I edit by nature.

Given that, part of why I don't like to publish things is because I am inclined to edit what I have created. After some time has passed and your spirit has changed, it's hard not to want to tinker. I've long been one to walk away and not revisit what I've created in the past because of this. Immutable makes me uncomfortable. Scrutiny can be never-ending.

So, as a disclaimer, I *have* recently edited a few of the early posts here because I simply never liked them. [I'm still on the fence about several others, but I've forced myself not to reread. The past is the past.] For the sake of transparency, there was a full disclosure of the few edits below, but I can't imagine who'd need to know or see that. This will likely not be repeated. [But if it is, I will again note it.]


Edited to add: I am aware that every edit republishes a post for newsreader readers. All I can say to that is "Sorry."
