The last day of May has rolled in, so time to take stock of #wipmadness progress! How did everyone do? Are you happy with where you ended up against your goals? Congrats to every single one of you for sticking with it!
As I mentioned last week, the theme this week is finishing. My question for you all is when do you declare your manuscript done? Do you have a trusted critique partner who tells you to send it? Do you have a set round of revisions or a checklist to pass your manuscript through? Do you reach a certain point when you know in your gut that it’s ready?
Because there’s that point, right? When you’re pretty sure you’ve done all the right things: multiple several rounds of revision, hiding the manuscript in the drawer, more critique, more revision, SEND!
And then, crap. Comments from someone else reveal the major work still needed.
So you do it all again, and again (and most probably, again). Desperately seeking perfection. I hope we all find it!
