You wrote something!
So how do you know when it’s ready?
Have you revised it?
How many times?
Once, twice, a million?
Have you read it OUT LOUD?
When you read it, does your brain throw up a warning flag at the same spot every time?
If it does, that’s a spot that still needs some tweaking.
Sometimes the warning flag is big and obvious.
Other times, it’s small and subtle.
your brain catches on it
like your sweater catches on a splinter—
You keep going,
but the splinter pulls you back and steals your focus for just a moment,
until you get loose.
Flags and snags mark the spots that need to be fixed.
Trust your instincts.
Silence the flags.
Patch the snags.
Does it feel ready?
