I thought I would hate editing. Creating– thatʻs my thing. Open the floodgate and let the good manaʻo (thought) flow. Editing? Shouldnʻt that be a job for a nerd behind a desk, crammed into the corner of some office somewhere– who knows where– who cares? Let someone else edit. I just want to write.
Turns out I was dead wrong. Editing is as much fun as writing– maybe more.
In editing I get to take this stream-of-consciousness, new-born thing and turn it into something poetic. Poetic prose– thatʻs what Iʻm calling my editing outcomes.
Surprise! Editing is fun!
