I’ve recently started revising Chemicals Collide. I have my first draft out with multiple beta-readers (thanks to everyone who volunteered to read it) and am awaiting feedback.
The editing process always makes me realised how easy writing a novel is. I don’t know if anyone else feels this way, but brainstorming, writing the actual novel, and getting the words down is the easy part! It’s taking those words and polishing them until they shine that is hard. It’s finding an agent who loves them as much as you do that is hard.
Editing is hard work. What is that saying? Write drunk and edit sober. It sounds right. Revising is time consuming and subjective.
What are your thoughts on editing? Do you have a particular process? I like to finish a draft, do a read through to make sure all my writing is okay, and then send it out into the world for feedback. What is your process?
