Editing, editing, editing

What is it about editing that makes me hesitate?  I have a story that’s been looked over, and I know where I need to make some changes.  But when I sit down to edit, I find that sometimes the words don’t come.  Writer’s block?  No, editing block.

This time, I’m making a big change to the opening scene, but I’m trying to figure out the words to use.  I’m not doing a large amount of editing overall, but I hope to finish it in the next hour (honestly, it’s not a very long story).  With any luck, I’ll have Journey to Ariadne part 3 up in the next 16 hours.

For those of you who write, how do you feel when you start editing something?
