Problem is, this most common of ailments is actually a complete disaster in my line of work. Sure I can figure out if commas belong and eliminate excess adverbs with a stuffy head, but it's times like this that I realize there's so much more to editing than that. Even with a line edit, there's intuition and holding onto endless amounts of detail and knowing what to fact-check and remembering that a character's bike was blue with white stripes at the beginning of the book and white with blue stripes at the end.
Uggggh. I want to be better. Everything hurts!
