I'm a chronic revisionist, it seems.
I think something is done, but every time I open the document, I find something to change.
One manuscript has been shortened several times. It went from over 700 words to 600, and under 500. Now I shaved off another 20 words. I realized the deleted words weren't needed. I could have used them, but no one will miss them.
I wonder if it's the end.
I do like where the manuscript is at now. Hoping that someone else will.
It makes me wonder what other writers think, and do.
