The Editing Couch
Thanks to those who emailed to ask how the editing was going. It went great but it's great to return to the real world once more.
Editing doesn't come easy for me. For some reason, the editing process can't be done in a coffee shop (like first draft) or at my computer desk (like second draft). It needs to be done in a sunny corner of my living room surrounded by:
- coffee (3 cups in this picture but I took a couple away)
- office supplies (colored post-its, gel pens & white-out)
- snacks (Okay, I hid the bag of white cheddar popcorn and others. I didn't want ya to think I was a total pig!)
With the ms now in NYC, I'll dive back into first draft of book two tomorrow. I don't need as many comforts when writing my first draft. I'll probably even bring my Dana to my son's ball game in the evening.
So tell me, do you like to have things a certain way before tackling a project?
