The bane of iGor’s existence, self-editing, is none the less an important weapon in the writer’s arsenal. For the continued co-operation of mini- *ahem* beta-readers, it is vital that writers are always respectful others’ time and the best way to do that is to only send out the best thing that you can. This takes the form of various stages from the nitty-gritty sentence level stuff to the full-on story-level high vantage-point view. The Mad Writers weave through the inverse triangle of self-editing in an effort to make sense of things.
