Today is another IWSG posting. The first Wednesday of the month is when we release our fears to the writing world and offer encouragement to other writers on the journey. Today, Captain Alex's trusty helpers are Beverly Stowe McClure, Megan Morgan, Viola Fury, Madeline Mora-Summonte, Angela Wooldridge, and Susan Gourley!
The question for today is How do you know when your story is ready?
Since I've been at this a while, for me, it's simple. My story is complete when on the edits, I am sure that I've tied up all plot points satisfactorily to answer all questions.
At the point where I start feeling sick and tired of my writing, that's usually a good time to quit. Also, when I start putting back commas I've taken out, that's the last step that tells me the book is finished.
How do you know when your story is finished?
For those who are competitive and like to give themselves a writing workout, don't forget the Anthology contest is open. Get details here. Please note that the word count has been revised, so your stories can be between 3,000 and 6,000 words. Have fun creating those stories!
