Almost finished a short story

I've been writing a pulpish short story for a contest. It should be there by tomorrow and I'm still coming up with new ideas and revising and rewriting! Argh! I'd give anything to be able to be a real pulp writer and come up with a publishable story with just one draft! Just how did they do that??

(Well, Louis L'Amour did that and from what I've read by him I've decided that his books are poorly plotted and his characters are pretty flat and unsuccesfully contradictory. His battle and fight scenes are quite well-written though.)
