While working on editing for The Burned and my other stories, I’ve realized that it seems dull because it is. You’ve read the story, studied it, wrote it, and you know every single detail. But there are points while editing where I go "YES! I wrote this?!? This is awesome!" (forgive my ego) and I kinda forget I’m editing and admire myself for a minute. Be proud of what you did, don’t edit shamefully, edit constructively.
There have been points where I wanted to rip my eyes out so I’d never have to read, reread, and rereread stories looking for mistakes. It can get agonizing so it helps to have people read it for you and point out mistakes. You know what you want to get across and they know what they can get from the story, so use it.
