Not because I'm horrible at editing (I'm not the best, but I'm not the worst) but because I am going too fast and missing too much in the process. Perhaps if I slowed down I might catch just a few more mistakes.
And I realize, I shouldn't be killing myself editing when it should be a fun process. And a recent interview came to mind. . Just last month I interviewed an author and one of my questions was What is your definition of "Magic"?
And Amber Garza's answer was: Taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary.

And I lost sight of this. Yesterday (Sunday) I had a really rough day and I didn't edit during the day as I had planned. So Sunday evening when I opened up my manuscript, I remembered this and realized that I just gotta slow down.
I realized that it is better to take a break, than to break the novel.
And now I am back to happily editing.
