Editing and Writing

I find that when I begin to edit a story, I have difficulty continuing to write on other stories. I want to completely edit one story - get it all the way through the editing process, and then I want to set it aside and begin something new.

Eventually, I will go back to the one I was editing and read it again - for content, for entertainment, to make sure it does what I want it to do and that the story arc is complete. But I have to have some distance from it for a short time.

I wonder if all writers do that?
