Before I began editing on Tuesday, I printed out a page of editing symbols. I was a little nervous at first, but I decided to just relax and take it word by word. So far, I think it’s going pretty well. The first paragraph took my twenty minutes, but after that, everything came together and it’s all I think about. I decided to edit on paper, so when it’s all done, I’ll see if I still like it that way. It’s funny, because when I’m not editing, that’s all I want to be doing! I know that it will take a few weeks to get finished, but when I do, it’s going to be quite a change, one for the better! I know I still have a lot to do and a lot to learn, but I’m ready for the challenge!

Wow, editing symbols. I can remember being totally fascinated with those when I first saw them.
My editor didn’t use them. ‘Course she edited between the lines of my Word .doc 🙂

Yes, editing symbols! I was very amazed by them as a kid, but now as a 30 year old woman, I’m terrified by them, only in the fact that if my symbol isn’t drawn right, I erase it and try again, (I guess I need to stop editing my editing). I’ve not yet seen how a “real” editor edits, but am very eager to learn the ways of editors…in 2011! 🙂
