As you know, I'm in that final push mode with my manuscript. I've polished and checked and polished some more, but I'm now wondering if I'm so close to it am I going to make a complete hash of it? I'm not sure which way is up anymore, or if I alter something, I wonder if I will take away what was good about it?
At what point do you know to stop editing? I imagine we can't be fully happy. Or can we? Is there a point when you know it's ok to let it go and genuinely believe that or are we doomed into an ever decreasing circle of editing?
I'm so close to this manuscript now that it feels a part of me. How do you let a part of you go?
And when you do, what happens then? You give it to someone who's going to pass an opinion on it.
*runs off to hide at this point*
Do we ever get too close or if we're still polishing it, does that mean it still needs it or are we polishing the nice shiny bit off?
When do we know it's time to let go?
