Now that you’ve finished your first draft, I want you to take your book…
Ignore it for a week.
Yeah. Back up your file, put it in a folder, and ignore it. Don’t do anything with it this week. Don’t even look at it.
Read somebody else’s book, watch TV, catch up on housework, go outside, do something else. Do anything besides work on your book.
At this point, you’re too close to the text to edit it, so you need to get some space from your work before you go back and mess with it again.
So take this week off, go relax, and ignore your book.
Next week we begin editing. Until then, have fun, and NO WRITING!
