I always knew that editing was hard. It’s always been my least favorite part of writing. But now, it seems somehow more difficult than usual.

Why? Because I read the first page of the manuscript and decided it was shit.

It’s so bad I can laugh about it. The description of the characters moving around is too detailed. This makes the story a boring read. Oh, and did I mention the idea itself is boring? So this makes it super extra over-boring.

But hey, I need to read it through, if for nothing else then to learn from my mistakes.

Plus, there’s a silver lining: at least I didn’t use a good story idea in a time of low quality writing like this.
