I'm making gnocchi right now, and it's all simmering and stewing together, so that's probably why my title came out the way it did :) Pour yourself a glass of wine and join me! It's the monthly Insecure Writer's Support Group blog hop. Check out the other bloggers here, and the fearless Alex Cavanaugh, creator of the hop.
So, how do you know when your story is ready? I have two schools of thought on this. On the one hand, no matter how many times I edit something, if I go back and read it later there are always things I want to change. But you have to find that balance between proper editing and never finishing something because you're searching for perfection. I think critique partners are vital to this. Especially if you're not so good at self-editing (which you should hopefully know about yourself). I happen to have LOVELY CPs. Don't be jealous :)
How about you guys?
In other news, Vengeance and Vermouth came out since my last IWSG post, and I'm announcing a new series very soon!! Plus working on a third thing for my agent. LOTS of stuff going on.
