hello old friend
This past weekend I read through an old manuscript (more on why I did this soon). This experience is something like a combination of reading an old journal and meeting for drinks with an ex boyfriend you suspect you might still be in love with. Exciting, illuminating and all kinds of uncomfortable.
The question of when to let go is one that has probably plagued every writer ever. I know I was ready to let go of this one once before because my agent and I already shopped it to publishers three years ago. So now the question is, do I still trust my twenty six year old self to make that decision on the behalf of my twenty nine year old self?
How do you know when it's time to let go?
