I think I have spoken a lot about how excruciating editing can be, right?
“While writing is like a joyful release, editing is a prison where the bars are my former intentions and the abusive warden my own neuroticism.”
― Tiffany Madison
This is what I mentioned way back…
Well, these are the problems that arise when you are editing your own work. Editing words that someone else wrote is an entirely different scenario.
It almost feels like walking into a field full of weeds, a machete in each hand, and just swinging with gay abandon!
Like, getting paid to find fault in someone else’s work. That’s the dream, right?
And if there aren’t too many faults? Why, that is just a walk through a field. Nobody minds that, right? Especially if you are getting paid for it.
So, remember: Writing as a passion is great. Much admirable. But as a profession, editing is far more fruitful.
