It’s really a hard question for an author. Do you publish your work or do you go back over it several times and then decide? Sometimes I think we over analyze our writing, trying to make it perfect. To be honest it may never be perfect.

I’ve caught myself doing just this with one of my works in progress. It’s funny how we’re more critical than the worst reviewer. Any work you do needs to be read at least twice, and one of those times needs to be out loud. When you read out loud it brings about another reality. Just make sure that you get someone else to read your work. That person needs to have a open mind.

As I work on my newest work I wonder, will someone really want to read this? What’s rewarding is when I hear from people asking when my next book in one of my series is going to be published. It makes things seem a lot better, but man does it make you stressed. Ok, now you have someone ready for that book that you’ve been working hard to finish, but it’s not quite there yet. 

My question to you is this. Do you over analyze your writing? Have you not published a finished piece because you feel it’s lacking something? Well, maybe you need a second opinion. It may just be you, not the book. Try it and see what you think. One of my best selling books was held out for longer because I didn’t think it was ready, but my editor just laughed and hit send on the publish button. Good call on her part 🙂

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
