What is one thing you hate when it comes to writing?

 

What part of writing do you absolutely hate? Are we talking editing? Researching? Revisions? Or is it something else?

I use to not be a fan of research but now I absolutely love it. I use to not be a fan of revising. But now I do enjoy that as well.

The thing I hate the most is editing. When it comes to commas, past tense, effect vs affect, which is something I can’t seem to remember, dangling participles and gosh so much more. I have on many occasion dub myself the Queen of commas and past tense in the sense I am so bad at them I rule.

I know or rather I feel I can’t possible be alone. Yes, there are those who love to edit and do line by line editing. I do tend to give them a, “What the heck is wrong with you?, look. How can any possible enjoy doing that? But there are. Thankfully there are.

I have editors for a reason. They can do the stuff like this that I can’t be bother with or don’t want to be bother with.

I give all the props to editors. It is not easy and very time consuming. And as Mark Twain put it, Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.”

So, I will leave it to them. I will go back to the job I love doing which is writing.
