Stages of a story

If my e-mail to friends is the embryo

and my blog post is the (squalling, suckling, sleeping, constantly pooping) infant

and my rough draft is the mischievous child living in a world of his own but still looking for security

and my published story is the worldly teen (but still looking for security)

what becomes the adult Spock with eyebrow raised on the world?

(Damnit, Jim, why does it always come back to Star Trek?)
