Still, I edited one of the longer chapters last night. It didnt' need much but I tightened up some of the sentences. And after I put it away I immediately started second guessing myself and worrying that there's too much repetition. So I might be back at that chapter again tonight. Ah well. Forward progress. I just wish I wasn't so tired of editing the book. I'm concerned that my frustration is coloring my editing.
I keep thinking that all these drafts haven't made my story better, it's made it bland. The first or second draft may not have been perfect but it was honest. I know, I know, I'm pre-rejecting my work. I need to not do that. Let an editor reject it instead. :)
Anyway, we will finish up this editing pass, fix what seems to me to be the problems and then send it out. THEN I can write something new. Bwa ha ha. Now where's that percocet?
