I always find it a little harrowing to get used to a new editor. Until I know their style I tend to read ever stupid little bit as criticism of my baby. It’s as irrational as unavoidable (or at least I have no clue how to stop those initial bristles). And it sucks.

I have the great good fortune of a partner, though, who does an excellent job of setting my head straight. So here goes my best effort at sucking it up, Princess, and doing the professional thing — sit my ass down and edit.

  1. From what I’ve seen and heard from stalking you guys like I do, this is a pretty normal response to have. Good luck with the edits. Hope they’re going ok. :)

    Yeah, I guess you’re right. It’s just so counterproductive, it drives me bonkers. Anyway, nothing for it but to dive straight in. Thanks for the pep talk.

    Well, hello gorgeous. Aren’t you a darling.

    It’s dripping more than pouring, but at least it’s still doing something. I can’t seem to get the same heady rush for editing that I get for writing (I know, boo-hoo). Besides, I want to write no.2, not edit no.1. And now I’ll stop whining and get back to work.

    Thanks heaps for stopping by.

    • lol yeah, I can imagine editing is not nearly as crankin’ as the writing. But as long as it’s still doing something, it counts as good. Ya know, progress and all that jazz. 😉

      Sends you all the good editing vibes I can muster. *makes squinty good vibes sending face* (<— that totally helps. It's a little know secret. It's aaaaall in the squinty face. 😉 )
