This month’s co-hosts are Sheena-kay Graham, Julie Musil, Jamie Ayres, and Mike Swift. Please be sure to thank them for their time and effort to make all IWSG members feel welcome. 

Let me set the scene. It’s 5:30 pm and I’ve finished my day job. In front of me, I have following task:

  • Quick read through and edit of a couple of chapters to send to my critique partners.
  • Revisions on two chapters to stick to my goal of finishing edits on this WIP by mid-Feb.
  • Write the first paragraph to a new MS for my Creative Workshop.

Which ‘free flowing, creative and something out of nothing’ task filled my heart with bliss.
Which ‘nit picky, mind numbing, never know if I’m doing it right’ task filled my brain with resentment.

Really, why can’t I get paid to create first drafts.

Because that’s ridiculous, but it makes me wonder, does anyone enjoy the editing process? If so, how did you get to that point?
