Editing only makes sense if there is such a thing as truth. It is not simply changing one’s mind. It is taking the effort to go back and correct.

It is painful to edit something you’ve written that’s good, very good, but not quite right. Since I write electronically, I do not give myself the luxury of rereading what I wrote, I simply delete it. This is both terrifying and comforting.
