So a fellow writer asked about the urge to change things in your book once it's published, and since I have just published IRKADURA (Yes! It's done! Here! I'm still working with Stuart on free files, so hang tight...), I have brushed with this terrible beast whilst scanning through my book after my editor has sent me the final final version. I have read that final final file and ended up cutting out 1K more words. As if this was not enough, I stumbled on a mind-blowing article by Chuck Palahniuk about "Thought" Verbs (the best advice about show-don't-tell you will ever read) and after reading it panic-edited another 100 words. I had to tie my hands with a barbed wire to make myself stop from changing anything else.
The book is done.
