I feel like I’m really wasting a 300th post, lol. But I’m finally falling into the habit and motion of NaNoEdMo, and part of it is that I came up with a solution that I feel marries my strengths and weaknesses as a writer/editor.
I write better at the computer. My hand cramps easy, I hold the pencil stupid, and I hate retyping into the computer — I get so frustrated with the process. I mean, do you see the emphasis on “hate” up there? That’s a lot of hate. HATE.
On the other hand, I cannot edit at a computer. My brain (well, all brains, I’m told) just don’t catch nuance and detail the same on a computer screen. But give me a red pen and a printed page, and well… I can go to fucking town. (It doesn’t feel like enough, actually, which is funny because EVERY PAGE looks like this. Editing a novel is hard on your ego, lol.)

Edit – 3:40PM – I got the first scene into the computer. I mean, sure, it went from half a page to a quarter and I’m still not certain about keeping it there, but it’s now in the computer! :D
