A Love, Hate Relationship with Editing – Daily Quote

I am not ready to join Christian and say editing is my favorite part, but I appreciate the results. Words and thoughts flow smoothly from idea to idea. There are no excess words, no bumps jarring the reader’s enjoyment of the piece.

Those jarring bumps are my pet peeves. It is like driving a convertible on the open road, the wind blowing your hair, sun shining on a brilliant blue summer’s day and BLAM you hit a pothole. You’re immediately snapped from your reverie and left wondering if you’ve bent a rim. Editing fills those nasty potholes and any distractions, so you can enjoy the scenery, and live in the moment.

What is your favorite part of the writing process?
