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.
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…
