TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
As a former fine artist, I can relate to the engineers' reluctance to let go
of it and say OK -- take it, it's done. I could just keep reworking my stuff
and reworking it, because it was never good enough. I have to fight that
tendency with my writing, too.
I like this:
Q: How do you know when a project is finished?
A: When you're out of time.

My personal favorite (and I have no idea where it came from) was something
"There comes a time in all projects when it's necessary to shoot the
engineers and begin production."
