In Editing Mode

Life often is about being in "editing mode." Changing, shifting, making small course corrections, rephrasing, striking - all are common exercises in our daily lives.   Therein we try to make our lives more focused, meaningful, signficant, etc...

I've been furiously working on editing my novel; and with the direction of a editor provided by my publisher, I believe the manuscript is tightening up, it's getting better, it's showing the kind of improvements that come from someone taking a close look and offering excellent suggestions.

So, what needs further editing in our lives?  A good question and worthy of some introspection.  I'm discovering, a little editing goes a long way toward making my life better.
