This year was definitely not what I expected. As for my goals, I accomplished more than I expected though not as much as I would have liked.

I haven’t ever mentioned it, but I read a few webcomics, and one in particular has some of the most veracious fans. They sit and camp for new pages every week and nitpick almost everything they see. The comic is set to update once a week and, especially lately, the artists have come up against a lot of delays which generally pushes the pages back. Whenever this happens, the fans get up in arms and it becomes a cycle of complaining about not getting an update to complaining about complainers and lashing out at them.
This seems to beg the question: how much responsibility does an artist and/or writer owe to their fans?
As NaNo is now over, it’s time for me to return to my normal projects: this means editing.
Oh, how I loathe editing in all it’s glory, going line by line and paragraph by paragraph and overhauling the entire thing over and over again until you just can’t stand to read it one more time. I am currently at that point with a novel I’m working on. This is my 4th time editing it, and as soon as I open it today, it will be the 5th.
A year has passed since I finished writing it, and in that time, much has changed. So how do I go about the editing process?
