Editing mode

I’m clearly not in editing mode. Editing mode—at least in this case—means when you’re working on something you’re editing when you’re away from it, when it’s occupying enough of your thoughts, you don’t have enough time to get all the thinking in while you’re actually working on it. I remember when I was in fiction writing in undergrad, we all got a class to just rewrite the story we were working on from memory. Obviously not as easy to do with a novel, but it might be an interesting way to work on problem spots.
