    The editing process is so different than writing – sort of left brain- right brain different. And it’s hard. But sometimes, when I’m rereading, I’ll read something in what I wrote that I didn’t know I was writing – a connection or a theme and I’ll be all surprised – like, wow – this works so well – where did it come from. Those are great moments in rereading – but I know the really hard work of editing is still to come. Yuck – hard but worthwhile.

    I actually did an editing course to help develop some ability. Reading your work out loud really helps, but I still hire a really good editor, that way I know my work is at it’s best. I actually like the first part of editing, it’s the nitty gritty when your book iis getting published, you know the final revisions that concern me. I don’t like things being wrong!
