Pretty close. I accept that there can be no hard or fast rules here, but I was curious to know whether any other writers here had their methods of deciding when to call it a day on a manuscript. Do you treat every manuscript separately, or do you have a set procedure that every manuscript goes through?
At the moment I'm very much treating each new manuscript separately. I was wondering if this changed for people as they gained more experience. Just curious.
