So, I'm in the middle of editing one of my stories - with a few side trips into revision territory.
I've been spending the last few days slashing and burning. My first drafts tend to have a log of redundant phrases. A lot! I don't worry about them at all when I'm drafting and not too much when I'm revising - I leave them for a treat for later. Because attacking that draft with my editing sword is FUN! I love tightening - finding the redundancies. It's my favourite part of the whole revising/editing process.
I'm not sure why the slashing makes me smile, but it does. I've always liked swords ...
So, what's your favourite part of the editing process? Do you like to wield your sword as well?
