When you start a project, finish it. Don't stop to edit, don't just go back to fix that one little thing. Instead, make a note (I prefer to use all caps and then highlight the comments) and then move in.
If you stop, if you slow down to make repairs, you lose momentum. As the old saying goes, strike while the iron is hot. The wonder of our modern age is that we can make second and third drafts without having to type the entire thing again.
When you are finished with the manuscript (and whatever edits you KNOW you want to make) set it aside. Work on a different project. When you have finished the next project, go back and look at the first project again. The reason for this is simple: You will have given yourself distance from the work and will be able to see all of the mistakes your mind was automatically correcting for you.
This is just how I work and it may not work for you. As Brian Keene is fond of saying "Your mileage may vary."(less)
James A. Moore I get to play make believe. If I do it well enough, I even get paid for it. How cool is that?

True story.

When I first got into reading it was strictly comic books. I mean for a very, very long time. I don't think I actually read a novel until I was around thirteen and before that, pretty much comic books. I read a LOT of comic books.

One of the first books that I bought for myself that wasn'... Read more of this blog post »
