The first cut is the deepest!

I just did my first "Reject" of a computer-related How To article in my freelance, online editing work.

I asked the writer a few simple questions and, BAM, she came back with an article twice the original length. In responding, she introduced roughly 12 items that IMHO required elaboration. Too bad, because the original was worth publishing if it incorporated the info I sought.

So long forest, hello trees.
