Editing a novel is like trying to solve a Rubik’s cube–you straighten out one plot issue and three new ones appear. This is now much easier to understand.

If anything, it’s heartening to read blogs/tweets from other writers and see that editing can be a challenge–no matter if you are on your 1st or you 5th novel.

I might have to sit out NaNoWriMo this year. I can’t see myself dedicating a month to writing something new when Closet Case is still such a tangled mass.
