Both and neither. I much prefer the madcap creative rush of the outlining and first draft stages. That’s why I write. Editing is sort of like cleaning up the kitchen after the whirlwind of whipping up some delicious and daring new dessert. But I don’t dread it. I enjoy straightening things up, pulling plot snarls straight, making every element of the story work together in unison. Writing is more exciting, but, in some respects, editing is more satisfying.
