Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers

As a new writer I'm finding that I need to take a break from time to time and let my brain catch up to my story.  Then all of a sudden in the middle of the night an idea will hit me of how to pick up where I left off and my story continues...is this normal?  I also find I keep going back and re-reading and re-writing what I've already written...Have you found this approach works for you or am I making more work for myself when I'll probably need my work professionally edited anyway?

A 'Farewell to Arms' was written and re-written one hundred times. 

Do you have any thoughts on that?

If a professional editor tackles copy and line edit would that satisfy you?

There are other kinds of editing that are important. One is development editing and right at the end is proof reading or editing.

It is a known thing when writers run into snags with plot, etc they reach for the bottle.

That's life I guess.

Plan to fail or fail to plan? Both are harming  and it is up to the individual.

Best wishes

I will persevere with my chin up!!  No matter the time and effort, I am determined to accomplish this goal!
