Okay, I’m doing better today. I didn’t give into the temptation to wallow, although I did allow myself a moment for, “What was I thinking submitting this?!?” I’ve already made a few changes and am focusing again on my conference (in two weeks!!).
But I got to thinking: now what?
I have some great advice for how to make my two novels better. But I’ve been working on one for almost two years and the other is about a year-old. How long do I keep editing/improving these before I move on and start writing a new story? When is it time to say, “Enough. This one gets buried. On to the next one.”
I’d be happy to know what others do…thanks for your suggestions!
