Lately the reality of how terrible I am at editing has become rather apparent. I get far too distracted, lose my drive and motivation, and don’t feel like I am using my creativity. It’s such an important part of the writing process, and one I frankly need to learn to do better. I always start off well then fall by the wayside only an hour or two into it. An hour or two of editing is simply not enough though. My first draft of a novel length story has been done for nearly a year, and I can’t just seem to finish the editing. This needs to become a major focus of mine, or I will never have any words see the light of day.
