Me: That'll do.
Control Freak: No.
Me: Save as.
Me: C'mon, we've made so many changes, now we're back to square one.
CF: I don't want to disappoint Kathleen. Do it, now type.
Me: But Kathleen said "not to change too much of the story we're already in love with.
CF: *grinds teeth* I said, type.
Me: Yes, ma'am.
I type, revise, read, type, revise, and read and read and read.
Me: There. Happy?
Me: I think we should send it to her and get her thoughts. It's our first round of edits.
Me: I'm saving as.
Me: I'm attaching the document in the email.
Inner Control Freak wrestles me to the ground where we proceed to fight over sending our revisions. I escape her fists of steel and hit "send".
And then, I look at the document one last time and discover I'm not happy with a verb I used in a scene. Great.
Me: See what you've done! *folds arms in anger*
CF: I told you not to send it. *shakes head*
Me: Ugh, I'm a loser.
CF: I could've told you that. All you had to do was ask.
How do you know when you're finished (absolutely) with revisions? Is it a feeling or do you just know? Do you wrestle with your inner muse about knowing when done is really done?
