Yes, I really do. I mean, I’ve done the difficult bit. I’ve written the story, haven’t I? I’ve crafted the work, created the narrative. Isn’t that enough?
The fact is, I’ve seen enough so-so stories, and just plain rubbish writing, that I know I have to do the absolute best I can with everything I do. It’s what I would expect, especially if I was paying for something.
But God, I hate editing!
That’s why I played with covers tonight, instead of editing, and created what I think is a rather nice cover for my collection of shorts.
I hope it’s successful.
