The last two weeks my inspiration has been all about editing since I'm eyeball deep in it. Don't worry about throwing me a life preserver though, I’m loving the deep water. Editing is my happy place. Sick? Yeah, I know, to most it's a painful process to be dreaded and avoided. But not for me. To me the hard part is out of the way now. Cutting and adding and searching for issues is what I love. My friends tell me I should have been an editor but I'm not sure I'd love it so much if it wasn’t my own work.
How is it that I enjoy it so much? I guess I just love the process of improving the work until it shines. From the cutting of adjectives to the correcting of semi-colons and dashes, every part of it brings me a feeling of accomplishment. When you celebrate each stage of the process it makes it much more enjoyable.
This week my reading inspiration has been Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins whenever I can steal a moment to read through a few pages. As for music, when I'm editing I like to listen to the blues, both new and old. Not sure why, I just do. Here's a taste of what's been on my playlist recently.
