I am new to editing, as I’ve said before. I spent many years pounding keys and hoping that a well-shaped story would spontaneously emerge. Then more recently I discovered how to separate out all the different creative processes that go into writing, I learned more about story structure, and I’ve begun to be more deliberate with my ideas through brainstorming, planning, and outlining. Now, for the first time, I’m learning to edit a large piece of writing.
I have learned a single thing, so of course I have to document that thing. #exhibitionist
