Snip snip: lost in the editing

There are subtle differences between what's written originally and what eventually gets into print.

Sometimes the edited versions make better reading but sometimes too, a lot of meaning gets lost in a sub-editor's need to cut stories short to fit the space. So what people read of my stories in the newspaper need not necessarily be the full story.

I'm already reproducing many of the newspaper's version of my stories in my other blog, It's All In The Planning!, but I'm seriously contmplating about posting my original versions here. If nothing else, it's just to fulfil a need to document "SSQuah Uncut" on the Net.

Should I or shouldn't I?
