Good Enough #2

Words are the tools of William's trade. The problem is that there are so many of them, and the number of ways in which they can be assembled approaches infinity. So, how does a writer know when something written is good enough? This is a metaphysical question, and has no answer. Therefore, in lieu of an answer, William has adopted a simple pragmatic test. When he revisits something written at least a month before, and finding it not good enough is nevertheless unable to improve on it, he declares it finished. Finished is good enough.
