This is how my husband takes care of weeds:
Fast, all-encompassing, rip-the-bandaid off style. Since our garden is dead (thank you, desert rats) burning everything works for us.
We don't have a picture of how I take care of weeds because I do it the normal, non-Tim-the-tool-man Taylor way. Pulling each and every weed up by its root, slow but efficient. Precise.
I'm just getting ready to edit the first draft of my current wip and I've been thinking about my editing style. I edit the same way I weed. Bit by bit, day by day over several weeks. I like to take my time with my editing, seriously thinking about every sentence. It blows my mind when people can edit their entire book in just a day or two. It takes me weeks to finish editing--longer if I'm doing major rewrites.
But just like my husband and the weeds, both ways get the job done--only he's watching the game in the air conditioned house after about fifteen minutes, while I'm out in the heat for hours. But at least the ground isn't charred when I finish.
What's your editing style?
