40 Days of 3 Questions: Day 35

Welcome to 40 Days of 3 Questions!

For the next few weeks, meet here every morning with a notebook or document to answer three questions about writing, about your status quo as a writer, or about the writing life. You can answer briefly and go about your day, or you can use this as a warm up exercise before your regular writing schedule. Whatever works for you, works for me.

Day 35 Questions:

  1. How do you know when your draft is final?
  2. How many revisions or editing passes do you make?
  3. Do you use critique partners, beta readers, editors to get to the final final draft?

You may post answers in comments or keep your thoughts private–your choice!

And here is today’s pretty picture:

If a hand is going to come out of your wall, shouldn’t it be holding a vase of flowers?
