I’m still hammering at the editing for Boneknapper. This is the hard part of the writing process for me. Not so much correcting grammar, spelling, etc. But it’s that should-I-put-more-here?, too-much-dialogue-here, not-enough-action-there, way-too-much-backstory parts that wear me down. I have a tendency to strive for perfection and that can and does lead me wanting to pull my hair out.
But, alas, I have great critique partners and editors who let me know what’s what.
Now, just to master that inner voice that keeps telling me ‘you need more here’ and ‘the chapter isn’t long enough’.
Does editing do this to you too?
