"One thing I’ve really found while editing is that I was super-indulgent in the first half of my manuscript — particularly the first ten chapters. Wow, did I ever over-write. However, though I’ve been stripping sentences out whole, the excess text has been helpful. As I edit descriptive grafs down into two-three sentences or fusing the details into a line of dialog, it’s helpful just to have the info right there.
Things are still going well with editing, but here’s another confession: I thought editing would be a breeze compared to writing the first draft. False. There is an artistry to editing that I have great appreciation for now. I’m not saying I’m an artist while doing this. Far from it. But if I ever do have an editor work on a book for me one day, I’ll be both quick and sincere with my thanks."
