This editing project was supposed to be easy. At least it looked easy. My editor didn’t even mark up all that much. But what IS marked is making me THINK!
I know, the nerve of her, right?
Thinking (for me) is time consuming. And then when I FINALLY write something, I have to go over it the next day and make sure it’s decent. Just like you go over a first draft because those first drafts suck, right? Well, so do my fixes. Sometimes. Okay, most of the time.
See??? TIME. CONSUMING.
At least the book will be better when I’m finished. I’d just like to be finished by now. I’m ready to work on my WIP. I don’t have to do a lot of thinking during a first draft, and I could use a little non-thinking writing about now. Heck, I wouldn’t mind a little time to read, either. Well… I did get some reading done yesterday, so not all was lost!
So… Have you ever started a project you thought was simple but ended up being anything BUT? Please share and show me I’m not alone.
