“Perfection is the enemy of good enough” is a great line. This post talks about writers demanding perfection during the rough draft phase and how damaging that can be, but I was struck by perfection at the other end. I mentioned to my wife today that I was starting the 9th draft of my current novel and she said I should call it done and get it published. I, however, want to give it one more go to polish it up. What do you think? How do you know when a piece of writing is done and when it could still use more work?
