So, I've revised and edited a story I had submitted to this workshop. Took in what people said (all very good advice) and went through the story, added, took away, and now I think it is finished.

What does everyone here usually do? Put the story away and start on something else for the workshop or resubmit it as a revised edition?

I think that is entirely up to you. If you feel it is polished and needs no more work, then I wouldn't bother resubmitting. If you would like another once over for things you may have missed, then resubmit.

"Art is never finished, only abandoned."

I think even Da Vinci had trouble knowing when it was ready.
