Has this ever happened to you?

I pitched a book at National and the editor said to send the full. So I finally finished my current WIP and can now sit down and do a re-read of said ms. I thought, "Hmm. Skim it, make sure I've dotted eyes and crossed tees and send that pup off."

Nope. It's not good. It's not good enough. Somehow, from the last time I edited it (a year ago) to now, I've learned A BUNCH. Now I have to do a rewrite.

Argh! Has this happened to you? Have you gone back to something you wrote, looked at it, and all of a sudden the scales fell away from your eyes?
