Some Records Aren't Meant to Be Broken

1 Jun 2009

Thirteenth…fourteenth rewrite…?  And an editor hasn’t even seen the bloody manuscript!

Is that a record, yet?

If I wasn’t so stubborn, I’d ditch this one and work on something else.

    Argh! How do you know it needs another rewrite? Maybe I’m not the best one to give advice, considering my recent #epic fail, but I will say this: If I waited until a book was “perfect” before submitting, I would never turn anything in.

    I don’t need it to be perfect. I just need not to roll my eyes or go “ugh!” while I read it… Of course, I have been told repeatedly I’m a harsh critic, especially of my own work. Editing notes to myself include lines like “WTF was I smoking?!?”
