Yes. I finally finished my second draft of The Sidewalk's Regrets. I'm realistic enough to know that's not the end of it, but as of last night, the manuscript is winging its way to two of my beta readers who I know will find all the funky spots and places the story makes no sense. I can no longer see those things.
The last two days of writing were a dream. I had to entirely rewrite the ending (about 4 chapters) and it was like the words were already there, embossed on the inside of my eyelids. All I had to do was type fast enough to catch them as they scrolled by. I love days like that. I wish they came more often.
So now I'm in that weird limbo where I'm not sure what to do. I have two potential projects to work on next. I could rework my historical story which I have some good ideas for, or I could start planning out the new idea I have which is still just a sketch.
Or I could just take a break for a couple of weeks, but I'm not that great at taking breaks.
What would you do? Do you jump right into a new project when you finish one, or do you take a rest first?
