Hard to Enter Text Again

I find it difficult to enter the text again for serious edits. It’s hard to go back and re-enter the text and re-visit your character because as a writer, you enter the character’s thoughts, and to enter anyone’s thoughts is a serious matter and not to be taken lightly. The hard part about editing is going back and remembering the details of what you wrote–what did the car look like or the stroller? It’s tedious. The easy part is correcting the grammar. The hardest part is after the editing process, to separate yourself from your character and then only to enter yet again.
