I am in editing hell.
There really is no other way to say it and this is my least favorite part of the writing process. Seriously, ask Karla.
I spent the past weekend banging out an amazing amount of words for a full story. I story boarded the entire thing from start to finish. Saw how each part of the story was going to go. Was so excited with the hero and heroine. They were coming across exactly how I saw them.
The dialogue was fast and witty. Their chemistry is right on.
But then the editing started. And by editing I mean filling in the rest of the story. The background. The back story (I got some great secondary characters here) and filler. Let's face it, my story can't just be all conversation. Well, it could. But then wouldn't that just be a screen play?
Now, I find I am dragging my feet on getting back to the story. I don't want to be one of those writers that just has the good ideas. Or can just see the story, I want to be one of those that can bring it to the page.
Tell me how you fall back in love when the editing starts?
