A Time To Edit

posted Sep 25, 2018, 9:46 AM by Ben Kreucher
A lot's happened over the summer. It was hot. I went to the lake. I worked hard. I read a lot. I wrote some, too. Now that it's autumn, though, it's time to buckle down. There's something relaxing about curling beneath a blanket on a cool fall day and editing. It seems to be my most productive time of the year... to edit. Maybe because all the rain keeps me indoors.

The nice thing about autumn is that soon the leaves will change color. Also, there's football to watch. Or at least have on in the background on mute while I edit (depends if anyone else is home).

A nice, warm cider in one hand and a good book in the other is a great way to spend the day. Whether reading or editing or just staring at pages wondering what color to add next to the shapes and lines on the page that form an image.

Sure, the rain and put people in a bit of a melancholy, esp. when that rain falls on a Monday or for a few days in a row, but eventually the rain stops (or turns to snow).

So, until next time, I'll just keep editing away and polish this manuscript until it shines or my fingers bleed.
