“Dear Editing. . .” An open letter to the friend I’d like to make. #amwriting #amediting

This year I made two New Year’s resolutions:

#1 – Stop asking “why.”

#2 – Learn to love editing. Here’s what I had to say about that in a guest post for Melanie Noelle Bernard’s blog. . .

  1. I enjoy the editing process more than writing the first draft. The story is complete–now all I have to do is move things around, add this, take out that, fix mistakes and typos (among other things).
    I’m currently working through my editor’s notes, and my own–revising, clarifying, even changing the protagonist’s POV from 3rd to 1st person. I’m having fun, but I have to admit, I’ll be happy when I’m completely finished. It seems as if I’ve been working on this manuscript forever. lol

  2. Uh-oh… Pulled out plotter vs pantser! *puts on crash gear*

    I’m not in love with editing or proof-reading yet. I have a bunch of first drafts that are finished and pending a rewrite, but I’m dragging my feet.

    I’ve got a long way to go! Thanks for this post; good read.
