My Favorite Edit

I've decided that my favorite edit is edit number two. When you write for the first time, you're filling a blank page. It's enjoyable, but hard.

But the second pass is the most fun. The structure is there, but it's usually weak. You add depth, emotion, and "meat" to the bones. The second draft is such an improvement from the first, and you feel like a master craftsman (or craftswoman, depending). It's an enjoyable experience.

My least favorite edit? That's easy. The last one. because by that point, you've been over the manuscript about a hundred times. #PainAndTorture

Oh I hear ya! I don't like the last one either...my main issue is that it becomes had to figure out which last edit is really your last!

Yes, but your fans love the final edit the most because the book is close to getting in our hands.

Playing games is a very good way to unleash our stress. Sometimes we need to know how to adjust ourself. I usually play guild wars 2. What about you? I know a very good store to buy Guild Wars 2 gold which is really cheap. If you happen to be a gw2 gamer and want Guild Wars 2 gold, then you should have a try. Anyway, have a nice day.
