after the last post‘s discussion, I have decided to wrap up the first draft of my fantasy novel. At this point, I want to set the draft away for a while before I pick it up and start the editing/rewrite process. I have two reasons for this –
- No time! I have exams coming up and I need to finish my darn bachelor thesis soon.
- It is recommended to take a break so you can look at your work from a fresh viewpoint.
How long do you usually wait between completing a draft and starting the editing process? I’ll probably wait three weeks. More like four, actually. My last exam is on February 14th – Valentine’s Day!
Share your experience and advice in the comments and have a nice week!
