While writing I have noticed that I edit my work constantly, I can imagine this happens to all writers at their early stages but as a beginner author and first book, this happens very frequently. My question is, how do you decide when your book is ready when you learn new things and improve your craft while writing the book? I don´t have any connections within the writers world and no one in my family is or have ever been writers, so it is hard to find any constructive criticism. I myself just started writing after studying political science for 5 years, so i did not build any contacts for this profession during collage either. Perhaps reviews from people that are not themselves in the writing business is better than I give them credit for?
