Funny, isn’t it, how some short stories or essays come so easily and need little revision. Others can be revised a hundred-and-one times and still, something isn’t quite right.
BUT–no matter how you think that piece shines, put it away for a few days and work on something else. When you revisit it, you’ll see the flaws. And reread it out loud. But not too loud or your family and neighbors will wonder about you.
Especially if there’s a murder scene. 🙂
