So you've finished your latest revision.
It took time, a lot of brainstorming, some back-and-forth emails with trusted friends and advisers, some sleepless nights, a couple long bike rides or walks, a dash of angst, some cutting and pasting and reconfiguring from old drafts, some creating of brand-spanking-new scenes, and a print-out and a red pen.
You got some more notes and updated accordingly. You finessed some awkward phrases and rewrote descriptions and metaphors. You printed it out again for a quick scan, and at long last you emailed a copy to your agent, your editor, or your critique group.
What do you do next?
A) Immediately start a new project
B) Take time off
C) Read a book or 20 to inspire you before jumping back in to writing
I'm torn between all three, leaning toward C.
Anyone else in the same boat? What did you decide?
