When do you stop rewriting?
How do you know when your work is polished? I don't know. I'm not sure anyone does.
My rule of thumb is to do the very best work I can, to see if I have met my objective (if I have done what I set out to do), and then to let the writing go. You can spend years rewriting your material. Don't! Do your best and send the work out. The feedback you get will help you do any more rewriting.
Consider what Albert Einstein said: "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
