Sun slicing across the morning here. I have been thinking a lot about the differences and similarities between editing and writing.
Common: creative, thoughtful, paying attention to word selection and flow, work (I am sure there is more...)
Not in common: different parts of my intelligence seem activated when editing or writing. Editing is less fun for me.
And you know, the more I think about it the less different they do seem to be from each other—except for the fun part!
As I have been doing much more editing of late maybe I am seeing this all in fog.
In any event, I am glad I have been rumbling around with these thoughts. I feel less tamed by dragons and more ready to let the words and edits fly in all directions. An egg is an egg is an egg yet each is from a different bird.
