Editing is the pits. Three novels and a creative non fiction piece to the word 'end.' Personally edited three to five times. Still finding booboos. Yuk. A spell checker and grammar checker don't cover it. Eyes on the paper is all there is. Mine are crossed.
Because editing is so much of a bummer to me, I am trying to begin a new wip (work in progress), but nothing is working. I have trashed four false starts. There is no hook coming to mind. Not a single plot shocker hits the paper. It's almost like I was afraid to have another manuscript to edit. Just the thought of which sends unwelcomed tingles up and down my spine like an electric shock. Never did like shocks.
Oh, well, I guess I'll just write. How about you?
