E is for Editing
Writers seems to be evenly divided about whether they like editing or not. I am firmly in the ‘like it’ camp. For me the hardest part of writing is getting that rough first draft completed.
I find the editing process is very relaxing (usually), and a way to tweak my book into the shape it needs to end up in. I do anywhere between 4 and 10 edits on each piece of writing. The final two – the line edit and copy edit – are always done with advice from paid professionals. A good editor is worth their weight in gold (though finding a good one who doesn’t actually want to be paid a fortune can be a challenge).
What camp are you in?
