Here's a Thought

Never throw up on an editor.
~Ellen Datlow

I read this quote and laughed. The admonition: Never throw up on an editor reminded me of my article "I Think I'm Gonna' Be Sick."
It's okay to write a lousy first draft. It's obligatory. Really.
Just don't send that oh-so-wretched first draft to an editor. That's why you re-write. And re-write again. So that an editor receives the final copy that sings.
Thoughts, anyone?
