Letting go

I have been revising my story after leaving it sit for over a month. I'd done edits as I went and had some feedback from my CPs, but something about it was bothering me and I knew I needed space to see what it was.

Space included a trip to the magnificent Flinders Ranges
and an amazing hot air balloon ride over the mountains at sunrise.

The space worked... kind of. I wasn't fulfilling the promise of the start because I'd rushed my ending. I managed to tweak a few things, completely change something else and now I think it's the better.

But I want to *know*...

How do you know when the story is done and it's time to let it go into the world (more CPs, beta readers, agent etc)?

  1. My tongue in cheek answer is when you're so sick of it, you can't bare to read it another time. It worked for me!!! But that could have just been a fluke :)
