Editing

Editing appears to be the toughest part of writing. It is righting our writing for publisher Wright. Sorry, I just had to say that and get it out once and for all. It is amazing that as you edit a piece you wrote days, weeks, or months ago, you find all manner of puzzles to decipher.
For example, in a paragraph concerning a female and a cat I found the following; He view the far aittin in the dosill. 
I know the He had to be She but the rest eluded me until I started looking at the keyboard and thinking of the context this was written to be in. Bottom line, this passage should have read, She saw the cat sitting on the windowsill. Not an exciting passage, but one that fit the paragraph and situation. 
Enjoy your editing.
