    I feel you about the struggle with revisions. I have never sent my book to an editor. I have been doing all of my re-revisions myself. And I am officially at the 7th draft/version of the book, with a separate document of some 30 pages of ‘cut content.’ Unofficially I have gone through each draft at least a couple of times before moving on to the next one, so the actual number of drafts would have been much higher had I separated them as such.

    Oddly enough I do not have the problem with the different perspective when reading my own work because every time I had finished one draft and then had a look at the first pages enough time had passed that I could look at the written content a lot more objectively than the stuff I had just written, if that makes sense. I get that a lot even when I draw or make something in photoshop, at first I’m very impressed with what I accomplished but as time moves on I begin to notice that this line was sloppy or that thing is misplaced or that that sentence makes no sense.

    What I’m trying to say is that a bit of time can help avoid the pitfalls of the IKEA effect. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IKEA_effect

    Anyway, have a good one gentlemen.
