Life’s a huge Edit.

Excuse my rant but editing sucks! 🗣🗣🗣
If you’re a writer, I’m sure that you get where I’m coming from. It’s really tough when you’re a self-published author, like myself, who has to do A-Z of the writing process 📢 BY YOURSELF! You may wonder where this frustration is coming from.
Well let me tell you. Editing shows you all your mistakes. It shows your inconsistencies. It shows where you can use some improvement. You even have those moments where you’re like, “What the hell was I thinking?” That’s me, currently, while editing one of my books for the fifty-leventh time!
Anyway, now that I’m done ranting.
I want to give you some quick inspiration. While going through the motions of my love/hate relationship with editing, I’ve realized that life’s a big old edit. Except you can’t go back and change the past, but yeah. Think about it. You may not be able to change the past but you get a do over. You can ultimately change the trajectory of your story.
If you pay attention, you can learn from your mistakes and become wiser. You may make some pretty awesome plans for your life only to find out that it’s best to take a completely different route, or that you suck at that and need to find your niche, or whatever the case may be. Just as editing can show you the truth about your work. Life can show you the truth about… your works! Life shows us who we are and it’s up to us to pay attention.
We don’t have to like the editing process of life that causes us to face some hard truths about ourselves, but in the end, it helps shape, mold, and grow us. In the end, if we’ve paid attention to the editing process of our lives, we will end up with a beautiful story.
So, even though editing to me is like the trials and tribulations of book writing, I can’t help but be patient and pay attention. I make it my business to learn from my previous mistakes so that I won’t continue to waste time. I’m ready to move on to the next level of this editing phase, but this part requires my attention, self discipline and patience. A lot of which the next level of my life is requiring. Thank God for Jesus, because in the editing process of life, His grace is sufficient for us to make it through. He’ll even help you with the entire process of writing a book. 😉
Anyway, hope you have enjoyed. No, I didn’t edit this. So if there’s mistakes, too bad. I’ve been editing for twelve hours straight, I have a headache and I just want to eat tacos and go to bed. Goodnight! 🌙😘
