Editing Makes Me Hate My Writing [Bloghop]

This is my entry for the Insecure Writer's Group...

I'm working on the final draft of a manuscript right now, and I'm at that point in editing where I've come to hate my book. I always get to this point while I'm editing. The typos make me angry. Like "Seriously? You couldn't figure out how to spell that?" I'm tired of the grammatical errors that make me want to send myself back to school. I'm at the point where all the focus on the problems and mistakes makes the book seem like the worst novel ever written and I want to throw it away and write something else. I have to remind myself that I always feel this way when I edit, and eventually I'll get through it, and come out the other side with a book I'm happy with.



How about you? Have you ever gotten that frustrated with your rough drafts? Let me know in the comments. And be sure to check out the other members of the Insecure Writers Group!
