In one of my previous posts I talked about the First Stage of Writing. Today, I want to talk to you about the editing process. The editing process is, for me, by far, the hardest part of writing. The reason is very simple. I am a perfectionist, and whenever I re-read something I have written, well, I end up changing it completely. The structure, the grammar, the vocabulary, everything changes when you are editing.Even some parts of the story change completely. And it so hard, to re-read and re-write everything. But it is a process every writer must go through. You will never be able to sell your first draft, no matter how good you are. Only if you edit your text thoroughly , you will be able to find someone to publish your book.
That is why this summer my goal is to edit every single short story I have written. I hope I will manage to do that, although it will be tough, and tiring. What are your writing goals for this summer? (Finishing a First Draft, an outline, or editing your writing?)
