    So I have a question. I haven’t done any creative writing in a looong time so I can’t really feel your pain when you’re talking about revising and editing a story.

    BUT, I’m curious why it’s such a painful process. Isn’t it like putting on the final, finishing touches on a project? Working out all the little kinks, putting in a few polishing touches removing some things that don’t work. So that you end up with a completed piece you feel satisfied with?
