Editing

Does-your-book-need-editing

This will be a quick post today.  I just wanted to drop in and tell you all that I LOVE EDITING!

I didn’t think I would.  I mean, I’m a perfectionist.  I’m the kind of person who hears “no one has ever done that perfectly” as a challenge.

Although I might wear myself out in the process.

So when it came time to edit for the first time, I thought I would hate it.  What perfectionist likes their flaws pointed out?  Turns out, I love it.  It’s a second chance.  I’m reading this book again, this book that I just wrote.  On one hand I’m thinking “dang, I’m good” and on the other I’m thinking “this little tweak will make it even better”.

Check out #amediting on twitter if you don’t believe me.  People post all the time about small changes they made that make all the difference.  But it’s not a bad thing.  It’s like a treasure hunt.  Look what I found that I can improve on.  I found it.  I improved it.  I’m an all-star.

I’m gonna go edit now.  BYE!

P.S. I am fully aware that once someone else is editing I may have a different opinion.  Let’s tackle that problem once it arrives…
