Shushing the Darlings
So I don’t know about anyone else’s characters, but when I’m editing, mine like to try and tell me how to do it.
“Oh, you don’t need to take that part out.”
“Yeah, take his line out. I don’t like listening to him.”
Of course, it doesn’t help that my two MC boys in Peril at Stormsurge don’t like each other very much. That makes them fun to write for, but maybe not so much fun to edit. Editing is not that enjoyable. I’d rather be writing, but wouldn’t we all.
I’m currently in the midst of Peril at Stormsurge, and am looking forward to the end result.
Hopefully you are, too.
