The Writing Life in Pictures: Edit Spin-Cycle

“You mean it still isn’t right?”

First comes the draft, then the revisions. See, I’m a rewriter—I like working this way—so once the novel is finished I go over and over and over the manuscript.

Does the sequence of events make sense?

What have I left out?

Have I edited sparkling excitement into literary pabulum?

Is this even fun anymore?

Gad, ANOTHER typo?

Around and around and around. The Edit Spin-Cycle.

    I hear you loud and clear! I too am a rewriter, but my problem really is that I have a hard time even getting INTO the machine (writing the first draft) in the first place!
