I am in the hell of editing. I know some authors enjoy the process. I am not one of them. So here are five things about editing:
- We hates it.
- Also, we hates it.
- Commas are an abomination from hell.
- ‘Delete’ in no way is a plausible auto-correct for the word ‘joy.’ I am still trying to determine how that particular mistake happened. What on earth did I originally type in that delete became the alternative? Or what was I thinking that I wrote delete instead of joy? So confused.
- There is not enough chocolate in the world to bribe me into enjoying editing.
The moral of the story? Editing is necessary, but a massive pain in the arse.
I do love my editor though. Hot Tree Editing is brilliant. Me? While editing, not so much. I’m brilliant while writing–occasionally.
