Why You Should Walk Away From Your Manuscript After It’s Completed.

Guess who finished her manuscript yesterday?

I did!


The second book to my Legends of Deceit 2-book series is done . . . well, the first draft.

So why am I walking away from it?

I’ll tell you why.

This is well-known advice in the literary world that a lot of us follow:

After you’re done writing the first draft, you need to set it aside for a couple of weeks or more to distance yourself from it. The reason why is because you need a break from your story, clear your mind, and go back to it with fresh eyes. By doing so you’ll catch more mistakes that way. Also, it’s fun, at least for me, because I’m reading stuff I wrote that I forgot about that’s entertaining. I’m looking forward to reading it at the end of this month.

So there you go. Now some of you learned something new today.

Oh, btw, I don’t have a title to this second book yet, but I will after I read it. Also, I have a cover in mind and will be talking to my designer about it soon, after I have the title. I’ll do a cover reveal here once it’s completed.

If you want to read Legends of Deceit before book two comes out, you can get it on 
Amazon for only .99 cents. Here are the links:
