I Hate to Write – Wait That’s Wrong

Standard

I have discovered I hate not writing – I love to write. I hate editing. With a passion. Why? Because it is boring, tedious and stressful.

I love the process of creating a story. I love to see how my characters develop as I write.

How can you tell that I’m a “pantser” and not much of a “planner” when it comes to telling a story?

(A pantser does not plan or outline, but begins to write. A planner likes to have most of the story already outlined and planned before she/he starts to write.)

The truth is that one has to edit. There’s no way a first pass telling of a tale will be perfect and a story should be as close as possible to perfect to get it ready for publication.

I am working on a set of short stories to be self-published later this year. And so I suffer the tedium of editing and rewrites. I must untangle the strings of the tale to create a story that will be worth reading.

Back to it then…..

Oh, I nearly forgot. I am using a software program to help me with the editing process. The website has a free option, although I purchased the software for a year, for my laptop.

I am not receiving any remuneration for telling others about this. I think it is a worthwhile tool to have as a writer:   ProWritingAid
