I'm discussing editing tips at my publisher's blog today

Here's a peek at the post:  

 
"Does the word editing make you cringe? 

Do you postpone this stage of the writing process as long as possible? 

Editing is a necessary part of the journey to publication, 

yet it often intimidates even seasoned writers...."


If you have a moment, I invite you to check it out


Thanks a bunch! :)

What are your weekend plans?

Happy writing,

  1. I am impatient when it comes to editing. I tend to do it too soon to just get it done, instead of letting the piece rest for a few days to look at with fresh eyes again!

  2. Lynn,
    The guest spot doesn't appear to be up yet, but hopefully it will be soon. I appreciate you stopping by! :) I too, don't always let it rest as much as I should.
    Happy writing,
    Karen

  3. Hi Karen. I guess, throughout the years, I've come to realize that editing is part of writing. I always find something that needs tweaking, correcting or eliminating! Susan

  4. Will look for it later. I find myself editing books as I read for pleasure. Sometimes it gets in the way of my enjoyment.

    Susan,
    It really is an important part of the process, isn't it? I'm always tweaking my content too. :)

    Linda,
    Thanks so much. Sorry it wasn't up right away. I edit as I read too! lol Comes with the territory, right? :)

    Thanks all,
    Karen

  6. I am discovering that one can never 'over-edit'. I found some errors in essays I intended to send out. Lesson learned!

  7. Thanks for the link! I'll check it out. I actually prefer editing to writing first drafts.

  8. Cecelia,
    We are learning and growing always, aren't we? :) Best wishes with the essays. Thanks for hopping over!

    Susie,
    You are welcome. Thanks so much for checking it out. I think I like the editing versus drafts too - it does mean it is closer to completion! :)

    Happy weekend,
    Karen

  9. I'd rather write five first drafts than edit one. I always seem to find something I want to tweak. At some point, we have to say, "enough."

  10. Susan,
    It's a tricky balance, isn't it? Thankfully you have good critique partners to review your draft. :)

    Medeia,
    Thanks a bunch! :)

    Happy weekend,
