“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?

You posted this just for me, didn’t you? XD Points taken, and on the curve.

Haha, no actually, but I guess it hit home. 🙂 I thought of it because of the conversation with Leah, like I mentioned but it’s good advice for all writers.
