Writing = Editing

I've realized one thing, writing is editing. I may spend 20% of my time writing and dreaming up plot line, but the other 80% I spend editing, correcting, highlighting and reorganizing. It's funny, I remember telling myself, I just want to write. That's it. But now that I'm going through the process I've realized that a writer does more than just write, they edit. I hate it how editing makes you doubt yourself and your capabilities of presenting an excellent story. And even though it's not my favorite part it's still a necessary evil. One that I'd suffer through any day!
