I wonder what the ratio is between writing and editing. I think it would be something like 1 to 15. For every hour you spend writing, you spend at least fifteen hours editing.
Ah, editing. That very necessary task. It shapes creativity into artful words. It changes scribbles into powerful stories. It turns simple scenes into visual masterpieces. It makes me want to scream.
I don't mind editing. In fact, I find the practice to be most beneficial in developing my writing skills. There's nothing like correcting the same grammatical error ten times to break you from writing its when in actuality you mean it's. At the very least, editing teaches patience.
