Writing Revelation

I'm editing 'The Third Transmutation', my monster/tech/magic fantasy novel, and it's going slowly. I've been over it a couple of times and made note of the scenes that need to be changed or added, so editing it again ought to be fairly straightforward. 

A couple of days ago I finally got through the first half after spending far too much time on it. I had trouble focussing on the work, and when I started I quickly lost interest again. I thought that maybe it was just one of those work phases where creativity isn't necessary and writing truly became work...  but today I discovered that's not the problem.

My Work in Progress and I are having a relationship crisis. The novel wants me to love it as it is; I want to change every damn little mistake I can get my hand on, and even that won't satisfy me.

It seems that I've once again discovered that loving my work and believing in it is important for my work process. The mind of a writer... Go figure.

And go edit. I have a feeling it'll be easier from now on.
