I’m working on the second rewrite of the first two chapters of a new book for a client. The first pass, which was only a page or two, did not go over well. I’m deliberately making this one much longer… about 8 pages so far (double spaced)… because I think that’s what it will take to demonstrate what it is I think we’re trying to do. It won’t be final copy. I know there are misunderstandings on my part that will require rewriting, but my gut tells me I’m on the right track.
So, when is a draft good enough to send? When is a manuscript final? How long is a piece of string? How high is the sky?
Yep, there’s no single right answer to any of these questions. It’s enough to make a freelancer crazy!
On the other hand, I love what I do and assume you do too. Living with the tension of is it good enough is a small price to pay.
How do you decide when a manuscript is good enough?
