The Antithesis has been done for over six months now. It has some solid fans who look forward to a chapter each week. A chapter a week should be easy to accomplish, given that the story is already done and sitting in my documents.
Unfortunately, this isn't turning out to be the case. Several days before the next installment release, I try to do a once-over to make sure the chapter is concise, solid, etc.
Instead, I read the first three sentences and think, "Uh. No. I need to rewrite this entire thing." So, what should have been roughly an hour of editing turns into approximately FOUR rewriting the entire chapter.
Does this happen to anyone else?
I've been coming to realize every piece of work I end up doing, I reread later and want to rewrite it. Is this some kind of perfectionist complex? I'm horrified that one day I'll look back at the chapter entries on my website and regret posting them. Hopefully someone knows what I mean. I get kind of worried that I won't appreciate my stuff later on, especially since I worked pretty hard on it.
