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)

It's May, so, of course, now is the time to pimp the new Christmas anthology I'm in later this year with, well, a ridiculous number of talented authors!

This one is called Hark! The Herald Angels Scream! and it's got a mighty fine line up.

“It felt oily in his mind and left an aftertaste in his soul.”
James A. Moore, Alien: Sea of Sorrows

“You could not save him.” Dretta nodded. “But he saved you. And you, Merros Dulver, you are supposed to save us from these Sa’ba Taalor when they attack. That’s what I keep hearing. That you are a hero and will keep us safe from the people that killed my husband.” Her voice was calm as she looked away from him to layer slices of roast meat and bread on his plate. When she looked up at him again her eyes were dry. “Keep us safe. Keep me safe. And while you are doing that, I want you to find the bitch that murdered my man and I want you to carve her head from her body.” Her voice was still calm; as if she were discussing the crops she might plant on the last lands of her villa. “Bring me her head and prove to me that my husband made the right choice in dying for you.”
James A. Moore, The Blasted Lands

“Life is pain. War is change. The raw materials of life hammered and shaped into something with a purpose.”
James A. Moore, City of Wonders
