use publishable in a sentence.
Editors wants agents to provide manuscripts in publishable shape and are willing to pay more money for them.
I had one of those unhealthy devotions to my manuscript -- I was going to get that thing in publishable shape, no matter what.
Part of this is almost certainly because I edit as I go and my first drafts are in publishable shape (in terms of words, sentences, and general coherency, anyway ... the story always benefits substantially from critique, and often changes dramatically before it is ready for submission).
I have taken some care, however, to write it in publishable form in case you think it useful and suitable.
They're great at spotting big problems, but I'm not sure they can make the difference between "publishable" and "no editor worth her salt would possibly pass this one up," which is what I'm shooting for these days.
