I have this novel that I’m trying to get to a read-able state and WOW is editing more difficult than writing! I’m usually motivated to write, but editing seems like such a slog that it’s difficult to know where you are, what you’re supposed to be doing, and how close you are to your goal.
In my case, I’ve learned that I just need to re-assess every once in awhile, consolidate all of my notes to myself, put them in a checklist, and make myself tackle a few each day. During my latest reassessment, I also jotted down suggestions for an overall editing structure that I’d like to try with my current draft. You can see my spread above. Let me know what you think!
