Jump off a Cliff

Are you brave enough to jump off a cliff?
Not literally.
Just writerly.

The writers over at theTollbooth blog talk today about jumping off a cliff -- completing the first draft of a novel and then -- hit the delete button and begin writing it all over again.

Are you brave enough to do this?
(Okay, if you are a coward like me, I give you permission to do like I do and save a copy somewhere.)
If you have tried this, did you discover that the second version was stronger/ tighter/ a better story?
