I hate line editing.

I am a traveller in the desert of Line Editing this week. There is no way out, except to walk through it. No helicopter is waiting in the wings to scoop me up and rescue me. I can only walk through it…

All kidding aside, I hate line editing. Re-writes are fine, because as much work as they are, at least I can feel the story getting better and better, but correcting word use here, comma use there, or choosing a different verb is where I find myself bogging downa nd losing my passion.

What I really need is a friend who thrives on that kind of thing and out of the blue offers to line edit my entire manuscript. But while I’m dreaming I might as well ask for a brilliant intellect and sharp wit while I’m at it, right?
