I intend to edit, edit, edit.

Shouldn't come in a word over 10,000.;-)

better than me. I tend to post too soon. Even after proof reading, i miss obvious mistakes, like missing words that can change the meaning of a sentence. I swear I tpe them in, and see them, and proof their presence, but when I hit 'publish' and look, they are not there.

I really need to get checked. my 47 year old brain must be way past warranty.

It's better to get it right than it is to get it right now.

I'm reminded of a quote by Albert Einstein: "Things should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler." That translates in this case to: "Editing is fine, but don't edit out what's necessary."

Now hurry up and finish it, willya?

I'm more in mind of a Karl Popper quotation:

"It is impossible to speak in such a way that you cannot be misunderstood."

But I'm trying to minimize that, at least.

Sheeesh, who do you think you are, Bill Whittle? ;-) Seriously, though, I'm sure it'll be worth the wait...
