I've been quite active on here recently, mainly because the alternative is actually sitting down and editing my manuscript a process I dislike a lot. Writing is fun, fluid, dynamic and engaging, editing is tedious, self-critical, occasionally destructive and uninspiring..
Therefore I procrastinate whereby even cleaning the toilet, washing the car in the rain, or taking a call from an energy provider who wants me to switch, become overwhelmingly appealing.
Reading some of the posts on here leads me to believe that many share my reluctance. Some will procrastinate over the big picture stuff like editing, characterization, or story construction - others over which verb to use or where to put a comma. (such small detail procrastinators will take 5 times as long to finish a manuscript but will spend 10 times less editing it!)
One great thing about editing - which is probably the only reason I end up doing it - is when I spot an opportunity to introduce a new character or a new scene. Then it's back to the tedium or more often than not Jericho Townhouse!!
Anyone have any tips on how to focus on the endless editing process?
