I hate being edited…

Creating something, anything, is the best feeling. The process is my favorite part, working and reworking through the initial thought process, gathering information to help form a mental picture of what needs to happen. I love the twists and turns that sometimes pop up. But what I really love are those wonderful times when from beginning to end it, the idea, seems to flow without effort and voila! There it is. The creation. 

Ususally, it is when I feel satisfied with myself and the creation that I then learn my work must be edited.

I hate being edited. It usually shatters my euphoria. It almost always irritates me. 

And yet, deep inside, I know that editing is part of a creative process. And almost always I come to see that the best part of the creative process is to endure the refiner’s fire.
