On rewriting a book

Many years ago, I wrote..but never attempted to publish a book…based partially on my experiences as an investigative reporter with WSB-Television in Atlanta, Georgia.  A few weeks ago, I began a rewrite.  Rewriting is reminding me that a manuscript is never good enough.    I remember a limerick that began, “You can boil it down until it simmers.  You can polish it till it glimmers….”  I don’t remember the rest of the four-line verse, but I suspect it spoke to a writer never being satisfied with what he or she has written.  I’m discovering that truth all over again.
