Editing, something everyone in the world has to do. Even if you’re not writing a book, you still need to look through and proof read your emails or blog posts before you send them out.
b/c posting lik dis dun look gud.
It can go easy some of the time. But sometimes, I just want to throw everything away!
Don’t get me wrong, I love writing. There’s nothing better then getting into the zone and cranking out a real gem of a piece. Sometimes the words just flow and I just have great stuff to work with.
I think the worst times are where I go over a scene several times. I read and reread it. I read it out loud, I run spell check. I think I have a good piece! At least until my beta reader Texaswordsmith reads it and returns the pages covered in red pen.
Then all the mistakes I didn’t see are glaring at me, like you should of seen this! What kind of writer are you????
Editing is hard, just plain hard. I sometimes worry I’ll get published and will go back to look at something and bam. There’s another mistake I missed!
Anyone else worry about this?
