Girls Write Out
Tuesday, September 05, 2006

I did't want to blog today. I don't want to go see my chiropractor this morning, but I desperately need to and probably will just because I hafta. Am I lazy? Am I feeling apathetic? No, the reason I don't want to do these things is because there's something else I'm itching to do.

My edits. I got them back last week from my fab new editor, Amanda at WestBow, and since then, I've had a loaded schedule and a weekend trip. I've been looking forward to digging in to them today.

Is it really me saying this? Me, who has always dreaded the edits and lambasted Colleen for her annoying exuberance? What is wrong with me?

I know, I know, I've officially gone over to the dark side. I'm sorry, K and Di, to alienate you and even up the score on the edit issue. It is now two against two, though I promise to not harass you when you complain about getting yours like a certain friend we know (whose name starts with a C and ends will olleen.) And speaking of that person, I know she knows better than than to utter a single "I told you so" because everybody finds that annoying.

(Edits, here I come!)

LOL! It's not my fault. It's because you see what great editing comments are all about now. Whoohoo, what fun!

I love the editing process. That's where I add all the glorious layering that makes the prose sing. And I love singing prose. :o)

It's the actual creatin gprocess that's harder for me sometimes. I think I second guess myself too much. Sigh.
