Duality of writing and editing

Looking back over, and editing, my first novel (written a little more than a year ago) ... it's daunting in some ways. I haven't looked over this material in a while, and it's odd. I read one chapter, and I'm like "Wow, that rocked!", then I read the next chapter and I'm like "Yikes! That was total dreck!"

So, you keep on editing, and hope you can turn out the best story you can. Sometimes it's a hit, sometimes it's a miss, but nothing beats that feeling of writing a hit. Unless it's maybe seeing that hit published.
