Finalizing the final edits of the final manuscript, finally

So I thought I had finished this story almost a year ago. Then, I thought not. So I started re-writing. Then I thought it was finished in January. But no. I needed to do some more revisions. Then I asked some people to read it for me, and now I’m taking their notes into consideration. I keep saving the manuscript as “final” but I’m now on the 3rd “final” version. Is three a charm?

Darlin’ it better be.

It’s been almost 6 years. No, I’m not kidding.

    I know how you feel…I’ve been working on mine for about 4 years. Trouble is, when you try to take all “notes into consideration” things start changing a little too much. You can’t please everyone, right? Best of luck to you~

    My first draft took me three years. I’ll begin first-round revisions in a couple of weeks, and I can’t even imagine how much longer I’ve got to go. I think it takes lots of people a long, long time. The important thing is that you get there in the end!

    At least when it’s finally finished, you feel really, really great about it… until you send it out to agents/editors šŸ™‚
