An author will draft his or her manuscript, and then edit edit EDIT…until the words are no longer painful to look at, despite the author having viewed them thousands of times over.  

(Existence may follow this pattern as well).  😉

  1. Indeed, maybe not really painful to look at in that sense, but more fluid when reading, you know, smoother; they edit the ‘bumps’. If only people were as willing as words: to be edited until they’re not ‘painful’ to be around.

  2. How did I miss this one!? haha. Exorcising your darlings… that’s writing (whoever said that). It never failed, if I hated it, everyone else loved it. Just like reality. Weird, huh? Writers therefore ALWAYS question reality, and their sanity.
