The day has come!
I finally have "finished" my Work-in-Progress, but when is a work truly finished? I've revised entire sections, I've sent first pages to several writers for critique (an on-going process) and I received feedback from a contest a few months back, which spawned several revisions.
Have you ever revised so much you start to go crazy with changing the same things repeatedly? I'm wondering if this is a clue to send forth my story to a wider arena: blogs offer plenty of opportunity to have pitches and first pages critiqued and judged. Here's a link to one of the upcoming opportunities: Teen Eyes Editorial Contest hosted by: Brenda Drake Writes, Miss Snark and Mother Write Repeat.
How do you determine when you're ready to share your story with a wider audience? Have you personally received feedback from an agent or published author contest (on a blog or elsewhere) that helped you in your revision?
