I think of creative writing as similar to painting. An artist makes a sketch, then corrects the lines, adds shadows and reflections, makes corrections until the picture is finished. Writing is similar. You write the rough draft, correct the plot line, add and subtract descriptions, correct voice, rhythm, develop character, and correct typos, misspellings, and grammar mistakes. Editing is hard when you have to look for errors and seek out the imperfect. But it's heaven when you can find the answer and the paragraph that used to be boring wakes up.
ON a different note, the floor beneath my bathroom is rotten, and the toilet is leaking into it causing bad smells. More $$$$.
