Now about this month's question: When do you know when your story is ready?
There are two things that signal FINISHED.
- I like the story again. Like most writers, I have a real love-hate relationship with my books. First, they're the most brilliant things I've ever penned, then they stink. It's after this phase and the love returns that I know it's ready.
