Getting Back to Story Editing

After about two weeks away from editing, I got back to editing my memoir last week, doing at least one chapter a day. Someone said staying away from your writing then going back later can give a you a fresh perspective on your work. That appears to have been true for me. From what I have looked over so far, I found errors I had not previously caught and some phrases and details I decided could be deleted.  And some things I wanted to add now that I had not thought of before. This is all part of the process, I have come to see.

editing quote 3
I'm beginning to feel I've gotten stronger with writing, as the above graphic states. It sounds like a good idea to believe.

editing quote 6
Another statement I can agree with.


  1. I'm glad your editing is going well. Love both those sayings.

  2. I am very glad to hear you are getting back to it. And that the break has done you good.
