So I have written a draft and have been editing for a month now. I manage to edit about 1500 words a day and that usually takes three hours, or five hours if you including daily chores, 5-10 minute breaks and so on. It feels like it is very little and I would very much like to know how efficiently other people manage to work while editing. The first draft is so much easier to write, there I can sit all day and write a full sized book in about a month. The problem is also that I am improving as I write and will most definitely reedit the story several times. It feels like I will never get it done. The moment I posted this I realised that the first stage of editing is the hardest and that it will get progressively easier. But the first question still remain, with a added question; what do you do when you have time to spare during the day when you cannot edit anymore? Do you start a new story? do you read? do you edit another story that you work on simultaneously?
