Re: Vision...

Yes, that's true. Having a clear vision is vitally important. Ideally, that should come from the editor, although sometimes it is predetermined by the publisher. In any case, it is the editor's job to create a visible target, and the writer's job to hit that target with submitted manuscripts. A vague or hidden target reduces the writer's options to "spray and pray," which is not good for anyone.
