I finished the first draft of the non-fiction story I have been working on since last July. I can't describe the feeling I had last night... or the feelings I'm having today as I think about it.
I've put it aside. That's what you're supposed to do, right? You're supposed to step back and let it simmer for a week. That way you're coming back to the work with a fresh perspective. I can't stop thinking about it. That's probably why the advice is weight a whole week, you need the time.
What do I do next? I read it and edit. Then... I make my Hubby read it. He reads everything I write. I also have a girlfriend who knows I've been working on this and has been waiting for me to finish it so she can read it too. Then, do I need Beta Readers? Probably, yes. Where do I find them? The Internet? Bah! I need to figure out what to do. In a week. In a week, I'll figure out what to do. Or something.
