    Hey guys.

    All the way back in November '08, I completed NaNoWriMo. My first one too! Oh I was so proud, until I read it. It needed a lot of work. Still does. But unlike other times (i.e. when not having finished the book) when the editing has been easy, this time I am struggling a lot.

    So I'm looking for motivational tips to keep me editing. Any help you can give me is great help!

    I am suffering the same thing. They say put it aside for a while and let it rest... Well it's been resting for a while and I still don't want to face it.

    Editing is evil. Replacing the word count padding is the worst. I have to figure out how to replace the Sweet Transvestite dance number from Rocky Horror with something that actually works with the plot.
