Editing: balancing everything in my head at once

I’ve finished the line edits for His Forgotten FiancéeBack to my regularly scheduled writing.

It was hard to keep track of all the different threads that I needed to update. To clear my head, I read this study on publishing and editing. It’s long, but starting on page 35 there’s a section on how different editors work with their authors. I loved one editor who described the process as clearing out weeds. As soon as you get rid of one layer of weeds, another layer sprouts up and you have to go back in and edit some more.
