For some reason, I kept thinking yesterday was Friday. So I had to think really hard before starting this post, to make sure I had the day right. (One of those weeks.)
I'm enjoying the Secret Agent's "this worked/this needs work" approach to the critiques. And you? Secret Agent feedback is consistently helpful and often amazing, and I find I particularly like this approach.
As for me, I'm happy to report that I reached "the end" last night on my WIP revisions, and will now spend the weekend going back through the whole thing one mo' time before sending it to my second set of readers.
Which brings me to today's question. We are often (and wisely) encouraged to "let things rest" before editing or revising or whatever we need to do. Of course, this is an individual thing, different for everybody. There is certainly such a thing as being "too close" to your work to see things clearly, but I believe there might also be a "too far" thing that can trip you up if you let something rest for too long.
For me, at the moment, going right back through the novel is exactly what I have to do. Everything's fresh, and I'm ready to see if my (sometimes extensive) revisions work as a whole. I'm not requiring a "rest time".
What works for you? It always fascinates me the way our different approaches/systems/habits all end up producing the same thing: a completed novel.
Share! And have a brilliant weekend.
