Have I said this before? It seems like I say this all the time.
I am editing….again….and it’s driving me up the wall. I keep changing stuff, hopefully making it better, but it’s such a slow process. I hate it. And I don’t use hate lightly.
Nothing about this is easy. Nothing about this is fun. Nothing about this is uplifting, inspiring, or even tolerable.
I keep praying I get this thing published mainly for one reason: so I can hire someone to edit my future work henceforth.
It’s boring. I know this stuff like the back of my hand. It’s mind-numbing. It’s outright awful.
This will be my last time. I just can’t take it anymore! I am just praying for the fortitude to finish this round and quickly.
I thought (for some stupid reason), This’ll be easy. Just one more quick read-through before querying. It’ll only take a couple of days. Wrong again.
I should have known better. It’s not quick. I guess I just tell myself this so I’ll do it. Because once I start it gets done.
But only from God’s will, not mine. I would have given up long ago.
