Most of us writers look for ways to correct things. Can it be said better? What word should I have used instead?
Do you ever go back and reread that novel you wrote four years ago? Are you editing it all over again?
If you had time to devote to the story you wrote, if you had time to let it settle, age, and ferment before you picked it up again, did you tear it apart, rewrite a few things, or smile in satisfaction as it required only a few re-touches?
There's a time to quit writing it. A time to let "The End" stand firm. A time to put it in the past and move on to the next story.
What do you see in your work when you look back?
Father, help us to be satisfied with the work of our hands, to give it due attention, our best efforts, and then to allow it to stand on its own as unique. Help us to do it all justice and then leave it. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
