Oops! Just learned I missed my regular blog day. Apologies to all!
So, I thought I was through with my edits and ready to send my manuscript on, but wait, am I really? Having the luxury of emailing a manuscript is a gift to me, since it cost so much to print and mail one these days. However, I'm beginning to see the danger of it too, because I can't stop editing, fixing, reading. One more change here, one more read there, one more comma there and oh, be sure to delete the 'was' there. Sighing....When does it end?
This will be the first manuscript I've ever submitted that hasn't been read by anyone but me, so I'm even more cautious than usual. But still. When is enough, enough?
I've talked to published authors who say they never read their work once it's on the shelf because even then, they see things they'd like to change or tweak.
So what about you? When do you know that enough is enough and it's time to let go?
