I'm trying to have a better relationship with my editor, aka I'm trying to have a better relationship with myself. Editing is conflicting, wanting to write out on paper the additions and corrections, spelling mistakes and weird tangents. Ah, the thrills of overthinking. But then getting it all back into the document, collecting all the loose thoughts as they flash and fade. But then just wanting it to make sense; to be the way you want it to be, almost unquestioningly programmed for instant gratification.
I'm trying to meditate to become a better editor. To become more patient with myself, critiquing my previous work, in an attempt to make it better. I'm hard on myself when it comes to many things, and editing is no different. The goal is with the meditation, I may become more patient and understanding of myself, and just accept the task, aware that resisting it will just take more energy. Accept the Evils of Editing, and know that every time you do, you get better.
