edit

I did a lot of editing yesterday. Maybe five hours. I was thorough, more thorough than I usually am, and the end result was a clear improvement. By the time I was finished, I was exhausted.

Got another editing task ahead of me, but not today. I might leave it until Monday. It takes sustained focus, to read and spot errors, juggle the options, make decisions, but all the while ensuring I’m not just reading the story. A bit like trying to stay awake when you’re tired – if you’re not careful you’re asleep before you know it.

A positive thing is, mostly I’ll think to do something with the text and then I’ll see that maybe three or five lines ahead, I’ve already done it, already addressed the issue. Which makes me feel like it was the correct decision. That I’m obeying the logic of the story. Which is important.
