For a person who is on Revision 10 of her current novel, the idea of editing has become an important theme in the current leg of my writing journey.
One of the first things I learned as a writer was to keep a notebook and pen with me at all times and to always write the ideas down when you’re caught in the throes of creativity. That lesson was learned the hard way. For some reason, the energy and vision of the initial idea must be captured fresh or you lose it. At least, that’s what happens to me.
