#writetip Do you get to relax and celebrate when you finish a manuscript and are getting ready to send it to your agent or publisher? You probably deserve it, but if you’re anything like me, it’s time to get to the next activity.
Yesterday, I finished updating my 3rd novel, Burnt, based on comments from Garry Ryan. I’ve sent it off to be proofread, and now, I’m not going to look at it for a couple of weeks.
What am I going to do with my time? Well . . .
- Write a blurb
- Write a synopsis
- Figure out if Burnt is the best title for the novel
- Update my website
- Update the CWC website
- Update my agent’s website (Margaret Hart at HSW Literary Agency)
And on and on it goes . . .
There is so much more to writing a novel than actually writing the novel.
