A good friend of mine posted this on my facebook page and I felt like I just had to share. When you chose to write a book, you plow into it with all of the excitement of a three-year-old on Christmas....and then reality strikes and you hit the editing portion of your dream. A lot of the words that you felt were so important, aren't so important anymore. The stuff that made you laugh so hard, barely make you chuckle now. Editing is hard work, but it's necessary. You wouldn't want to put something that you had slaved over for months, or even years, with mistakes. Can you fix them all? No. We're only human. But editing is a major part of writing. So...I will keep trucking on and trying my best to edit Dust. I will probaly end up hiring a professional editor if needed. But for now, my eraser and I will be best of friends.
