Since the beginning they’ve said, “Your writing does not suck. You’re just not done yet.”

So, when is it done?

Today the group discusses the importance of getting down the core of your story, the dangers of never-ending edits, the pressure to create the never-before-seen premise, and making sure your pivotal moments get the bulk of your critical eye. They also quiz Jess on what sort of fact-checking, if any, an editor will do.
