    writer all my life -- professional and unemployed ;) -- and, while my writing is far from poetry, I can't imagine not editing.  I see the first draft as building the tools with which I'll work.  The editing is the real creation for me.  Besides the genesis of it, of course.

    I admire what you can do.

      last night and today were overly busy, and I meant to get back to this sooner, wanted to explain, or just to comment about the writing process for me.

      My poetry craft was born after a style of Zen Painting, wherein the Artist puts a brush to canvas, and once he lifts it, he is done ... with no corrections ... which is akin to one's training with the sword, each sword cut is a thing in and of its own self ... one cannot change the cut, it lives in time ... and so, when i was 19, i began writing poetry with this axiom, to not revise the words, and then, over times, this honed within me a voice,

      Now, when I write Business Proposals, Business Plans, or my screen play, there is always a constant revising, and in that process, I do embrace such practice, but with my poetry writing, my process evokes within me a deeper voice, it has nurtured the subtle places within my heart to speak strongly, fluidly, unabashedly. So, this allows my creative side, and my logical side, to each play a role in my writing. And, so, now, having honed that creative flow, when I am writing even a business document, I can tap into that creative spirit, and then switch between the two, And, professionally, I am an IT Exec, a programmer, a coder, a Systems Architect, Data Architect, with a strong focus on Business Analysis and certain Industry focus.
