Typepad has a very convenient "drafts" folder into which you can write things that aren't ready for publication yet. My drafts folder is overflowing. I suppose that means that the editor in me is looking forward to reviewing them and sending them back for revisions.
If you wait long enough between the time you write something and the time you publish it, it's possible that you can make your writing enough better to be worth the wait. Generally, though, the work that I like the most has been edited in public. If my writing doesn't escape the draft folder quickly, chances are pretty good that it isn't ever worth publishing, even in an open notebook.

The wind on Saturday made farmers market blustery. Squash of all sizes and varieties were there, and there’s nothing like a big old Hubbard squash to keep the corner of a table down. A farmer was doing the frost dance but said they had none at the last full moon. Traditionally, it’s said that the best way to open a Hubbard is to take an axe to it, or to throw it down into the cellar.

Credit the quote to Kevin Doyle Jones, as part of an exchange on Twitter with Jerry Michalski, questioning why someone would go to the trouble of putting out a big, interesting, free newsletter and then not expose some of its insights to the network beyond that of its current subscriber base.
