Ok so here is my process of writing stories, each line is a change of the one before.
The bla-
The tiny black-
A small black cat jump-
A small black cat with fur like dark velvet jumped-
A small black cat with fur like midnight dark velvet leaped up onto the railing.
A small black cat with fur like midnight velvet leaped up onto the railing.
A small black cat with fur like midnight velvet leaped up onto the balcony railing.

And that is just one sentence. It is generally much less complicated then that. All of that gets reeeeaaaaallllllyy spread out over like three or five edits.
I might end up using this bit later but I don't know.
