I can't believe I'm doing this.

Okay, so I got my final draft back with the final edit suggestions.  I took must of them but now I'm going over my book again getting rid of stuff.  I printed it off and am reading it like a person buying a the book from the store.

It's helping me not be so dang critical.  I need to stop or I'll end up with a completely different story.  Is this normal?  Do writers get over paranoid that your/their book isn't quit up to snuff to send it off to a agent or a publisher?

Do I need to keep my hands off of it?


  1. When I was writing my story - I put stuff in, took stuff out, and finally said this is it and I am not going to make any more changes. Too much editing and your whole story changes.
