I'm struggling with knowing when a novel is done. I mean, when it is done being revised and editing, torn apart, revised and edited again?
I've been working on "Breathless" for almost a year and it has been written, edited, revised, and rewritten in sections. I've added scenes, killed scenes, and almost killed a character. I'm comfortable with how it is right now and I still love the story. I love the characters and I love their love story. I've decided I would really like to self-publish this novella, but I'm struggling with being done.
Most days... I think it's done.
But other days... it needs something more.
How do you find the balance and decide that your book is how you want it to be? I'm right on the edge of deciding as I'm looking to hire a freelance editor. But I want to make sure the book is ready! Will it ever be ready?
