Editing is writing

Lately, I edit.

I edit my work. Others’ work. I edit as work. I edit.

Today I was writing new work.

Today was nice.

When you edit a lot for a long time you become reluctant to allow a sentence go over six words unless you absolutely need to.

Then you go back to writing, and your writing is better.

You edit less.

Did I mention today was nice?

It was.
