How Strong is Your Editing Voice?

We all have an editing voice.

The editor’s voice is the leading cause of putting the pencil down and walking away.

For some, it’s strong and the voice lives aggressively in our heads.

It’s the voice that goes, “That won’t work”, ”That’s not good enough”, or “It needs to be perfect.”

Editing too much too early is the reason why we stop being creative.

It’s the stopping before we even start.

There’s a time and place for editing, but it isn’t when we’re about to make something meaningful to ourselves or for others.
