Now What?

I loathe editing. I love writing. I love the ability to word vomit on the page and not have to worry if you've forgotten a letter here, or a word there.

But editing is a different beast. Spell check doesn't catch everything, sadly. It's why we do a round or two of editing before we send our work to the beta readers. Then we edit based on feedback.

Then we go to agents, edit. Then publishers, and edit again.

Truthfully, writing is fun. Editing is the work.

Do you guys have your game faces on today? :)

  1. I agree wholeheartedly. I love first drafts, but I'm not so keen on the stuff that comes afterwards, although I'm learning to appreciate it at least :-)

  2. I miss the writing part. I feel like I've been editing forever and it doesn't stop! I need my game face and a bit of focus :)

Please know that if you comment and I don't respond, it's not because I don't love you. It's because I don't have wifi, but I do have a bad memory.
