Most of the writers I know hate editing, but I don't mind it at all. There is a certain satisfaction in polishing your text until it is as good as you can make it.
New writers make the mistake of thinking that the purpose of the edit is to get rid of the errors. That is not true at all. Modern word processors check your spelling (and sometimes your grammar) as you type. In an ideal world, there wouldn't be any errors at all. It isn't an ideal world, however, and the odd one will always slip through. Those do need to be edited out, of course, but it is not the main function of the edit.
I go through my text onscreen once, improving the text as I go. Then I print it out and go through it with a fine tooth comb, using coloured highlighters. You would be amazed at how much text I discover that looked perfectly good on screen, only to be revealed as not cutting the mustard on paper. The reason for this is that you read much faster on screen, so you can miss stuff that isn't quite good enough easily. The process involves multiple passes in both directions until almost every page in the whole document (over 500 of them in this instance) has been altered for the better. The final book won't have 500+ pages - more like 400+ of them. This is because the first draft is double-spaced, which leaves room to pen annotations between the lines when editing.
Back to work. Still a lot of editing to do before it goes to Cuzzie for the proofread.
