And here we are, just two days away from posting the story, and I have written four drafts. And the question that has occurred to me is: how many more should I write?
I have rewritten it twice today, hopefully fixed most of its faults, and have even read it out loud to make sure it flowed.
And it does flow, which makes me think that I haven’t necessarily written a truly terrible story.

It’s also to keep you in constant state of anxiety and insecurity, so much so that when people say they love something you write you never believe them!
