What do you do when you're finished


I'm finished. What now?

What do you do?

Re: What do you do when you're finished


Hehe!

First I call up my friend (and editor) Robert and brag to him. Then I take the night off.

Then I go back and do the final edit. (If you haven't already.) This is mostly for fun, since there's not that much left to change if I consider it "done".

Then... I start on a new project! Or, knowing me, continue one of the other five that I've got hanging around unfinished.

Congrats!

Celebrate!

Seriously, it's worth it. Celebrate with your family and friends, they deserve it, too, because they missed you while you wrote.

Then, after a few days, do an edit run. And then send it to your agent, or to publishers. emoticon

After that, like Reythia said, start a new project.

And now: Congrats for finishing! Well done, what an archievement!

I've sent it to betas, so I'm not editing yet. It will need another draft, I think.

...Trying, I think Blitzen may have a slightly different definition of "celebrate" than the one you and I are working under! emoticon

You can't really talk, though.
