sorting and polishing

It is not unusual for me to go back to a post and tweak it;
A little adjustment to the spelling or grammar.
Sometimes a word or phrase trips me as I re-read.
Occasionally even the title gets scrapped and redone
Usually, the ending just happens and I know I am finished with the telling but sometimes I go back later and re-write it. It's fun to do that.
I like to think of this as sorting and polishing although I originally thought of the name Sort and Polish as a reference to memories, that they are something we sort and polish like a collection of stones.
I have loved doing both the sorting and the polishing.

Thank you! When I began my blog, every name I tried had already been taken it seemed. It never ceases to amaze me how alike we all are.
Years ago, I read the phrase, sorting and polishing, and it stuck in my mind like a burr to a sock. I didn't realize then, that I would end up with a 'story' blog and that the name of it would be a story in itself. Thanks for your comments and encouragement!
