I guess the lesson is not to fall too in love with what you've just composed, it will likely be changed somehow.

Amen. I've found over the years, when editing myself, that the best thing is not to get too attached to the actual words to the detriment of the message I am trying to communicate and the overall effectiveness of the communication. Always write with your audience in mind-- or write pretty much the way you would speak to someone about it, if you were trying to convince them of a point.

Just now, I read about how Shakespeare revised his own work quite a bit.

Which leads us to this, though of course that's getting away from prose and into poetry, I suppose.
