Still Editing


Even though I don't normally like editing (who does?), I've been enjoying myself.
Wait.
I really am!
I've been taking my WIP and line by line working on taking my characters from 2-D to 3-D.
My critique group finds my grammar errors and straightens me out, which I am truly grateful.
While editing, I decided I'd better give my MC a convenient weakness. She has to go inside underground tunnels to rescue her boyfriend so I think she gets to be claustrophobic. Now I have to go back and put in a few lines here and there with her phobia popping up.
Which makes me go back to editing!
Just when I thought I could see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Oh well.
I keep reminding myself that I'm learning.

No light at the end of the tunnel? Sounds like claustrophobia to me! I think you'll do well with this round of edits.

I know that most people don't, but I LOVE editing! Sometimes, I think I love it more than writing. It just makes my writing so much better that I get excited about it all over again. Sometimes I just get in an editing mood, and have a hard time switching back to writing mode.

I'm glad you've been enjoying yourself this time. Sounds like your book is getting really awesome!
