Okay, so I am only 3 hours into editing my first manuscript and I am totally lost. The editor sent me the document bright and early this morning and I gamely started work only to get overwhelmed in blue type and weird cross outs. And where the heck did the duplicate punctuation and paragraphs come from? I had hoped this would be a wham bam thank you m’am sort of redo, some fast pounding, a satisfied sigh and then roll over and go to sleep. Well, what do you expect, I am a romance writer that likes a little sex every few chapters.
So what does a frustrated writer do? I say pour some wine, yell at your kids to be quiet and write your manicure off..What else is there? What do I really want to be doing, writing the next book not fixing what I had hoped was an already done story but that is the nature of the beast. Okay, enough whining, I need to get to the wining and bang out this round of edits, let the evil have it!
