    I’m the opposite… I love editing, but the first draft stage is where I get frustrated by the glaciers of moving pieces. I get worried that certain elements won’t get on the page fast enough for me to remember them, or will simply fall into obscurity as I forget to wrap up a loose end.

    I’m with you on first-draft ecstasy and editing woes. Editing becomes its own unique challenge for me but it’s just so hard to turn the valve off and stick to a script.

  3. I’m doing Camp NaNoWriMo and have realized that I need to edit the first part of my book before I can continue drafting the next part. Hellooooo frustration! But I am motivated by the knowledge of how much better it will be once I get through with it…

    Editing is a frustration to me as well. I do not think that I am very good at it. I know the rules. But the rules seem to get in the way of what I want to say… Or at least the way I want to say it? The magic of the first draft is golden. (But then, my gold will never see the light of day unless it is honed and perfected!)
