Edit Time

.

Five stories are written.   All have been read and edited on the computer several times, but now is time for the big edit.   I print it out and focus on it completely.  This stack of paper is so intimidating right now.  I have 16,472 words to read.  Each word to be judged and questioned.   I hope that I still like all these stories tomorrow.   I hope I like me tomorrow, too.  I have never had so much of my own work to read at one time; this could be very uplifting or completely soul crushing.

You know the old saying “Hell is an eternity spend with your friends”?  I think the printed out, big edit is sort of like this.  I am about to spend several hours with myself from the recent past.  I hope she is intriguing.
