Revising: Again and again and...

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.

** How many times do you revise?

** Do you see things to change after you think you are done?

** Share your experiences.
