Publish a post and then keep it open

Wordpress: After I hit Publish, a new blog posting is created, and eventually is saved as a draft. How can I change this behaviour so that the post I've just created is published, but that the post I just published is open, instead of a new post?

My methodology is this:
1] Create a new post. Because I use the WP Default Post Content plugin
, certain parts of the post are already there.
2] Write the rest of the post.
3] Publish the post.
What happens then is that another
new post is created, with the bits from the above plugin included. After 60 seconds, this is saved as a draft, because there is some content to the post (if there is no content, the post doesn't get saved as a draft
). At the end of the month, I have 30 drafts, none of which will be used, which all contain exactly the same information. I do not want this to happen.
What I want is for the Publish button to publish the current post, while keeping it open and editable
(instead of creating a new post). How can I achieve this?
