So, in my last writing tips post I stated that editing is better than writing. Now that that post is live on the internet forever, I have slightly changed my opinion. I’ve refined it.
Here is a more accurate statement:
Revising is better than writing the first draft.
I said editing before, but what I really meant was revising. Because, when I think of editing, I think of minor changes and fixing spelling/grammar issues. That part is definitely not fun. But it is still more fun, for me, than forcing out that first draft. First draft’s are painful. Revising is fun. Editing is work.
